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
