Poem: Myriads

one speck spiralling
buzzing near my head
damned annoying bug

I stretch, I swat, I flail
failing to connect
and then it escalates

two specks spiralling
hunting for bare skin
then there is a third

and then the swarm descends
making us all flee!

Poem: Sonorous

resonant
rich deep round
ringing full booming
mellifluous melodious
vibrant clear mellow
Full-toned full-bodied
resounding reverberations
BELL

 

Poem: Crackling

fresh meat
dripping blood
skin peeled back
spiced and salted
fried in butter
until crisply rendered

heaven knocks at my door
begging for a taste

go to hell
I reply
it’s where I got the recipe.

Poem: Carbonated

black dust settling
over every surface
feel it gathering
down inside your lungs

coughing
hacking
gasping

each breath incomplete
carbonated
effervescence
death inside your pores.

Poem: Things

gathering dust
behind glass doors
sparkling trinkets
made from memories
I can’t let go
