Undoing (with audio)

Black

on grey

on twilight,

the purple dusk

and bruised toenail

sliver of moon.

The trees

are dark beasts

on the horizon

and I rode- I strode,

on my own two-feet

to the gallows,

the sad-sweet moment

of my undoing

its not magic

but something else

altogether—

Like a first smile,

like a newly found element.

Something else,

yes, something else entirely.

There is a face in the moon,

a skull,

a dry, dead grinning thing

and it is this,

it is always this

I return to.

WINTERING

Wintering this body.

I wear my seperateness

like a shield from fantasy

and the fear of cold.

I know by now

one santa claus

who comes with a strange,

black gift for each of us.

I know love is real

but a fugitive from law.

That freedom’s breath is raw

and the world we think round

is shapeless after all.

WINTERING

I’m reblogging one of my first posts.  AND I’m adding an audio clip.  This is my first attempt at recording and I must admit it is kinda scary…so I started with a brief one 🙂 I’d love some feedback!

Wintering this body.

I wear my seperateness like a shield from fantasy and the fear of cold.

Read the rest at WINTERING.
