I owe you a sunrise.

That morning,
the frost
crept across the dark tendril of road.
Cracked stone shattered and popped.

The sour bite of spent tire
spilled and rolled into the
field, crisp with blue shadows
thrown by a nascent glow.

Destiny and

A surreal fear
congealed across my heart.




I welcomed her.
My breath a
ragged promise,
a stale, crooked smile.

Her visage
a blanket of onyx
thrown across the stars.

A dream bespoken
of a growling red.
A martyred thought…

Desired Tragedy

A saccharin longing
for a tragic end.

Upended and trampled
like a reckless desire
for holy reckonings.

Breath, cascading
towards a howling violet.
Cap not your simmering
a muted fire of bashful abandon.

Unleash your glorious vehemence
upon a deserted cause.
Triggers and clicks.
Cross and dagger.
Bone and shriek.

Mindful of muted awe.
A clamoring, oily black
tipped over upon a misplaced youth.

Herald of a quiet age
tapping your shoulder.

Mechanized Schematic

Dawn the Emperor’s power,
break loose the royal blood.

Habitual longing united
with thunderous rancor,
speedily abated
by a creosote sweat.

Slake and quench
a luminous Moon’s
sanguine gullet.

Our portion
meted out
by a ravenous clan.

Hold fast, weary traveler,
and rip off your portion.

The Stars, Our Kindred

The stars, our kindred,
their tendrilled flames,
our gasping breath,
will close together as
a lover’s kiss.

Embraced by molten dust,
a showered oblivion
welcomes the entropic gaze
of a reticent abeyance.

Forego the clamoring maw,
you Ancient Soul,
and toss your head upwards
towards the shimmering din.
Forego Gaea’s mossy grasp,
and cradle your paramour’s longing.
