Image for the poem black feather

black feather

frail hum of dust  
breathes skeleton stir
ground from the bone pile  
memories whir
in the oubliette  
cold stones confer
Death  
is not  
forever
 
through rasp of truth  
time spits its germs
where lies bleed frantic
festered worms
in the oubliette
cruel reason squirms
Death
is not  
forever
 
life's circus stained
graffiti tears
shriek dream demolished
wasted years
in the oubliette
stale tasting fear
sighs Death
is not  
forever
