Image for the poem Vahalll


Saturnal secrets splinter    
Night lamentations
crashed comets have fallen  
among raging bonfire
a pandemonium of planets rained down †
Hammering from skies hissing hindsights †
I am the only one here †
I virago, made of man †
Through devouring black tongues of sooth †
dystopian dragons swallowed †  
dark oaths pledged †  
asking death for forgiveness †
Moons ago lightyears myriads †
our histories were written in ashen purpose †
ancient archeologists discovered these burial mounds †
I was amongst them, channeling my visions †
from stars I gained their insights †
burning permafrost with precastinations †
I was Socrates drinking the conium as my spirit split in halflight †
From fossiled fountains I drank wisdom, I walked pain as a path †
upon great maps of the universe as it shook serpentine tails †
From dinosaur ivory we created spheres and spears †
We lay at earth's endowed †bossom drinking dark sap from trees listening †
to the grass grow learning from stories of dew where karma slept †
†My breath dried into Odin's blind eye †
Black dahlias budding from cloud decks ravishing dervish flames †
bare oceanums murmerering murder in incandescant moonlight †
In a bedoin death tent cries life †
and poetry returns to me as a child, as a lover, as a wave †
Let this be my will †
only horizons echo
