cobwebs from corners

through treasured icons reaches

for my dusty soul…

 

“death-gaze”
watching dead leaves fall
from the cell through a window,
time seems frozen still.

“universality”
when you stand on heights
and rain wets you,see it
falling on vales too.

“windows”
two windows set near
one lit yet other not- as
opaque septum parts them.

“puddle”
sips by the beak off puddle,
crow slakes but as man im forced
‘drink safe lest guts crash

“candy”
never candy melts
but chewed down unrelished- my
mouth chews by instinct

“love lost”
our love cedes, meeting
flesh of flayed realities
so we wed new lies

“oratio”
prose to set a fire
lovely hymns to quench- so my
prayer cycle recurs.

“rules to climb”
when you hear a gurgle
know your foot’s on splay- climb up
or roll down, no stay.

“doze-off”
sweet note,loved, treasured
crumbles in hand as i slumber
lethal lethargy!

“irony”
id crush boulders, eat them
digest,filled, live by it, yet
tip over a pip-sized rise.

“spectres on ice”
icebed arctic melts,
a mammoth calf unveiled
haunts me back here home.

“drip drying”
clothes to dry, sun slips
wind blows, lost sun bemoaned
forgets- wind dries too.

“outspoken”
‘john’s dead’-said in jest
the words flew, all johns fell dead
that’s the thrust words wield.
