turning
 

turning
my bloodied spit
the raped sky
decibel of tears
of remembrance
 

bittersweet
 

this charnel house burning
dense sky unlimbered
echoing laughter
my pulse
 
the ripped tide of the dark
the avaricious calm retraced
 
burnt cloud
the sky falling
 
shadow endless
bitter flesh upon fleshed lies

the night's laughter

incarcerated the longing
in a superfluous light
my fingers burn at the touch
shadow of all things permanent
an embraced eyelid
tears of blood the nectar
burning my heart to an
ashen white
the scars trace the nights laughter
