SOLITUDE REVISITED

Image

 

The stare thwacked

Quest  through the aeons and aeons  ended in jitters

when it resonated through the amorous membranes

slide in the time-run froze

Complete standstill

Silence

Silence

Nascent seed to sprout

cracks

the welcoming call of the bird yonder

 

Like an enemy shouldering defeat to the cross

in the bitter expanse

wandered the dumb silence

MIGRAINE

From the cerebellum

took off the gnats

whizzing through the dura mater

gnawing at the frontal sinus

excruciating pain sutured pleasure dig

the hard-nosed to thaw

the deep down base to drip

 

You are my migraine

my love!

THE DRIFTER

 ImageGET LOST!

Fuming words
climbed down the stairs
bumping
butting
banging against the neighbors’ shut doors
With knitted brows and screwed eyes
shrunk faces in grief
surfaced

Touch down
lessened the heat and the heart
fuming words drifted off
morphing into the blanketing night

Pervading breeze stroked gently
dirty road dead end 
I walk…
