to commemorate the release of my collection ‘FROM MY FRONT STEPS‘ on June 5,
here’s an except from my first collection ‘A DISTILLED SPIRIT.’
in a trick of light i found you
pouring venom from calloused hands
ripping faith from gibbous moon
i’ve loved you ever since.
your cruel grace matched by
even the coldest of gray januaries and
as the sun died
you spoke to me the foulest nothings
whispered from your alligator snout.
you poured acid in my ears to
quell my methods of thinking when
you knew full well
i had no free will at all.
chant a new song of turpitude
i’ll love you ever more.
