Frosted Glass

  Looking through my frosted glazing. A winters Sunday morn. The piercing coldness, so bitter. A wind like razor blades. And my somber music plays. The slivering venetian blinds, so bland. Hiding little of the external Arctic chill. A frozen sparrow lays on the sill, Ready to fall, on dirt, so icy. A meagre frigidContinue reading “Frosted Glass”

Dominion

    Find meat stuck in teeth of glaze-eyed Beasts, Of prey from some dangerless lands, Pluck out what was left from unprincipled feasts, And show them the fibrous strands. Upon seeing these, it’d cause no unease, Save for those with the conscience of rams, To dismantlers by degrees, as dutch elm disease, In unremorseful-ladenContinue reading “Dominion”

Monster’s Name

And by that mystery of heaven’s pride, the border where death and life coincide, was breath given unto mismatched remnants, held together with foreign ligaments. A hand from a jar, eyes plucked from the ground, in their proper places the most renowned. I am forged of vivisection’s treasures, every part wonderful in its measure. ButContinue reading “Monster’s Name”

Ivor Steven: This Lost Shadow

  I’m writing this song for my body, and for my soul. I’m singing this song, about my return from the cold. Why am I so tired, is sixty so old. Why am I so sore, have I been far too bold. I’m so physically worn and so mentally torn. I’m so worried about myContinue reading “Ivor Steven: This Lost Shadow”

Lies Behind Your Smile

  What lies behind your smile? Not always sweetness or gentle thoughts. With teeth flashing like a blade of a knife, what you cannot hear in ones furtive mind, saves you from feeling fraught. She speaks with a voice of an angel – with lightness of words tucked in feathers of wings. Yet look closelyContinue reading “Lies Behind Your Smile”
