Erosion

March 19th, 2008


Three-stories high

Crack the window

Peek below

Frost covered ground

Uncolored snow

Glares the mirror

Watery mascara

Greasy spaghetti hair

What forgotten era

Break glass, tantrum time

Buddhist shrine

Mountain pose


Prepare to dive

Muscle moving once

Muscle moving twice

Cookie dough palms

Up

and

Over the sill

Silent somber ode

White flesh glowed

Seas erode

Corrode

Forebode

Sick seeds sowed

Soar in the air

Abandon dreams there

Guts explode

Cracked bones

Blood splatter

Not that it really ever

Matters

Longest story

Two seconds to read

Flock, scatter

Blood chatter

Red grass

Raven's pass

Bag the groceries

Don't let the juices spill

Blindfold the kids

Hurry, while time is still


Preheat to 475 ° Fahrenheit

Roast 'em right

Flicker flames

And salty tears

A thousand pages

Remember those years

And all those compounding

Compounding

Compounding

Fears

Abandoned hall

Sticky tiled floor

Laughter's ball

Silenced with a fall

Burn the books

Spread the pall

Repress the sight

Drain the blood

And watch them die

Those soft spring buds
