Release Me

Close your eyes
Release me as though I could fly away.
As though the birds could come back,
The black would become white and I the colors of the rainbow.
Release that into your wind as breath.

As it was…

As it was with warriors of old –
slaughtering wild beasts
for their wives & children,
to sustain them
& prove themselves –

so it is with you;
carrying the corpses of spiders
on the soles of your feet,
in sacrifice to me
& my phobia.

Dusk

Shadows grow as skies turn red,
Reaching the light that’s new,
Old dreams whisked softly into beds,
Beyond, where bluebirds flew.

horsemen

in my sleepless nights
when all birds are silent
I can sometimes hear
the droning gallop
of the apocalyptic horsemen
