Death

I had a thought so
Dark I could not see

Like a fly trapped in
Syrup that oozes in

My head fed by age
& inclination turning

My blood to amber
& my breath to sky

Angels' Mercy

The iron door cringes at
The creak of hinges old
Beyond time flattened
Against the wall hangs
A pall heavy of regret
Yet light in the memory
Of mirrors swirling in
Random patterns long
Divested of any divine
Reflection / from an
Open window comes
The rush of escaped
Conviction

Cracks

Cracks in the old wood
Cuts the possibility
Into can or not

Stones Bones & Sign

Walking
Down a limestone path
Littered w/horse excreta
Reduced to their original
Elements by the weather
(oats hay & such)
We
Observed an aeroplane
Circling overhead like a
Bird of prey while the dog
Strayed from the path to
Smell all the distracting
Scents left amidst the
Leaves bones & grass
We
Crossed a bridge over a
Nameless creek slithering
‘Round the moss covered
Rocks rooted in drift silt
& time
We
Noted some cryptic signs
Nailed to the trees w/out
Any words written upon
To pronounce judgment
Of innocence or guilt
With
Christmas just a few
Days away the solstice
Hovers mysterious &
Compelling
