On January 21, 2013 by Neil

face turned
countenance of overcast sunsets:
hard, gray steel;
clenches fists into great oak gnarlings,
glares at towering alpine-self in brutal ice-blue waters,
tearing down skies to clothe with tragedy of falling stars.


Hero of wounds, humiliation.

“I can’t abide!!
How dare
you abide!!”

Slow sands of love, the hourglass dribbles.

mumbled whining of grumpy magpie,
grenadiering his feeding range.
