2020-12-07 – Insomniacidal (in collaboration with Lucy of Lucy’s Works)

red moon’s
peculiar night climbing a cricket eye;
Lazarus the dead, fingers of the moon
colder than the dust of a poet
I leave to hide my wind-wept ghosts,

and plead to the shattering in star-death
to star-death; I fall,
dying,
broken off the spore
like mold.

a charred moon’s vining
velvets winding
around the stem
of a crystal
flute,

wasted land, the headless
scan seeds raped

the outsides frosted
on love’s eyes,

please peel the
crickets from
this bed of
off white lies

like I tried,

then go Lazarus the dead
resting from their
tinder boxes

and give me back
my head before
the bullet
holes

and i feigned
self-control,

+++
 
find refuge in  
a dead tree, 
 
the after-breath of a 
star, dissolution, 
 
in disunity, fangs 
deep in womb’s 
darker fruits, 

+++
 
take me away, let 
me breathe 
alone, 
 
trust i’ll float in  
a storm’s
dust, 
 
the infant midst night’s 
wiser stars, i’ll meet  
you wherever  
you are. 

++++
 
undress my undead
bones,

insomniacidal, in 
voice tone

tragic, is it not, in
the ossification of
mother’s
womb

and stirs of despair,
conjure nothing
but a dream?

Ghosts of lovelorn,
prophets,

incinerate me in a
tomb of your
Lazarus
eyes,

and you, you can take
the head out of
my mind;

and in my dreams, take
the child, I was her,
ever chasing her
for touch.

dissolving in threat
of a bloody
moon,

unphased,

chew the scent of the
ethereal abyss
waiting,

in our duplicity,
have we lost
our minds instead? 

I don’t know:
a dead fool is
better than gold.

Dust motes meet
the dead ghosts;
our oasis drowns

and in whispered breath,
I see the autumn lichen
swirl into fresh
cocktail of
winter

with a candle path
lit to the
stars.
