already rotten

the cemetery is covered
with night and silence
she lies on the grave
pressing her face
into the moist ground
her sweetheart is already rotten
and heaven is a faraway place

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.

Knowing not where to begin,
And just how hard it all has been;
We will always feel within,
The love and grace of Marilyn

singing me to a deep sleep

morning melody

if I wish to, I’ll wake you up next morning
with coffee, kiss and a song without words
which will sing any death off your brain

October Sun

the eyes closed, I am lying
on a bed of fallen leaves
I can smell the soil so close
& in the far, the scent of decay
