Stained Glass Memories

Share with me this lucidity,
an amorous shell of fragile wisdom,
molten disparity, solid warmth,
kisses of sugared cherries and grape.
Hear them mulling in burning chests,
as the sun strikes down upon black crowns,
offering no more than
exhausted exaltation.
Hoarding time and gathering detail
we capture this earthly colour
in our stained-glassed memories.


The Blue Embrace

The sea was calling.
As I stood on the edge of the world
I imagined everything suddenly
turning on it's side.
The water below moved over the rocks
like cells dividing, 
and the rocks sang warning to the sea
to open her weary arms
to me.

Fields of Carmine

I left my
in a coffin
made of webs
where it grows wild and
in fields of carmine.
I often miss the pain.
The fruitful anguish of
with a 
bellowing chest.







The objectification
of my own shadow
cast bluntly
over your chest

                                                                perversity armoured,
                                                                                              adorned in gold.


Delicate Elytron


Delicate elytron,

The clouds have fallen,
slowly, dreadfully,
nothing will grow from this dark shadow now
except the aluminium beetles with wings that glow green
tiny bodies
filled with death
and love
and me.
