Defiance

Gimpy gait he struts
though
solitaire without a shadow
down
rutted, rusted road snakes
restless,
weary ’round each bend.
Shifting shaky sand slips and slides.
His old feet fail,
fall faint upon it
stagger storm and strut
where
stones rock and pebbles pinch,
fault-filled gait crackles ‘neath each step
Still
Pounding onward, pushing forward
Past the slights the past portends,
Potent danger
Daunting dares
Dante’s depth.

‘Ere Dawn

‘ERE DAWN

 

I sweat an angst of present blackness.

Ebony chokes tight against my hurried heart.

Thoughts bitter bubble up breathe putrid ash
And drain a molten cornucopia.

Soliloquy

I beg a remedy quells all taint of fears.

Pray darkness light relentless shines the Truth of them,

Shudders, shakes and spits out all the lies they cannot hide.

I pray quick comes the roaring stillness tells the dawn survives.
