POEM — Black Moon

Crippled brain

Chemicals darting

Blind ants

Devil’s deed

Black moon

Frightened stars

Weary heart

Decomposing soul

Fuck the world!

 

Colorado mountains

Jagged peaks

Crumbled stones

Untied boots

Exhausted limbs

 

Another embryo

Cushioned in the womb

Shattered if carried

With bipolar arms

Lullabies sung

Gale March winds

Etched crevices

Parched skin

 

Nonna’s wardens

Narrowing eyes

Raised brats

All her own

 

She’s shrinking to

Infancy

Born alone

 

Final curtain

Burnt flesh

Before day break

 

Yearning to die

What purpose have I?

Walk with me Jesus

The time is nigh!
