Outside

Image

Children forgotten
Forest wide
Left alone
In autumn.
Little resilience
Subtle silence
Toward the man who
Did not want them.
The man, not sane,
Without a name,
Head down on the bar.
He know not why,
He left the five
Cold, outside
The car.

 

 

 

Turn

Lies on either side,
Honesty has become
the luxury,
The dream to live.
The honest
Face the immoral
and become immoral.
A clear conscious,
Is a double barrel,
The mind magnified,
The ego intensified.
The illogical
Responsible
For the chaos
Probable.

 

 

Clench

The women wept
As darkness swept
From mountain to
Mountain, over
The small village
As children screamed.
For what they felt
Came shortly after,
To those older,
A chilling song
That caused eyes
To clench shut,
And dreams
To crawl backward
Into the cave
Of mind.
Causing Men
To sit in the sand
And wonder
Why
They had already
Given up
