out of
the matter pod: a parfit
gentil knight

the Sibyl speaks: silos start to rise

  Ful worthy was he in his lordes werre,
  And therto hadde he riden (no man ferre)
  As wel in Cristendom as hethenesse,
  And ever honoured for his worthinesse. 
Geoffrey Chaucer

dusty blue skies, carnation-pink
death rays

how sweet her breath! but she does not breathe

Gedankenexperiment

what if ski-masked goons
roam these woods…
let’s stay indoors

Hold still, son. It is the will of God.

Aeons

tick
the mountains crumble

what the heck are those things in my ash pan?

this machinery of grace

Posted by Rich Magahiz Sun, 30 Dec 2007 04:45:00 GMT

an outer ring of heck
smelling of
strawberries

her hands full of cloud tissues of scorn

Lee’s redoubt
where dark lines find
their griefs multiply

an ounce of ash and that too soon gone

tender to the bone
our enemies
our hearts’ ease

how long this machinery of grace?

her life list:
a spidery red hand,
then nothing

the sea sucks at the rock… pink-flushed foam

first bacteria
then fungi
kiss their host

the coldest flame: we all wear our pyres
