Wilderness encroaches, but not that natural friend.
Cold, no encouragement for motion, loner’s frigid emptiness.
how was a prison made of
ambition to widen wisdom? Where went that golden prize
promised to the bold?
Old inspirations, imaginary wilds, heroic rambling tales
of bravery betrayed –
River runs ‘til dammed, then festers in its own demise.
Ogres’ tale sold to deny extrication from stagnation.
Hold pattern sewn so deep within, rip to open.
See, infection seethe, angry demon nest.
Deathgrin infestation decades in
screams destruction, roils, licks with pestilence.
Breathe, smile to invite connection; tightly hold,
rip out and close.
Dream dance surreal city stage, above
skylights, twinkle eyes of play romance,
To feel explosive-ecstatic alive,
swirl, swoon, dive, with grace and awe.
Twirl akimbo in free fall, no walls, no floor --
air embraces. Smiling Moon face beams in stasis,
gleeful spirits dip and sway a’flight
this enchanted night.
War exhumes murder of that other you
the bad wolf child who mother banned
Banshee fled to far-flung lands seeking
freakish friends, fiendish plans for revenge,
memory enemies to stomp, squeeze, bleed.
Where were you when she died inside you?
