my bloodied spit

the raped sky

decibel of tears

of remembrance


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
