grubby grists of euphuistic prolixity

She slips from sleep to silence swirling deep and slow
through eyes ajar sucks in the soft light's subtle glow
enraptured mind drifts free of corpus sapiens
dispassionately watched through sentience's lens

Still Life

Like drooping flowers, station lights
breathe out upon the grimy trains
Delicately, sepia'd nights
birth yellow ghosts as moon's light wanes

geola thiccet

slow-sapped winter branches rake the darkly brooding sky
their spindly hands stand sentry over sylvan silhouettes
the lichen-girt bark shivers as the northern winds slip by
thrusting toes beneath the earth, the spinney dozes and forgets

Tho' cock's crow wakes the oil-streaked tract
the sterile earth lies drained and cracked
and dawn's first blush in vain, finds nature's children broken-backed

My vast horizon slowly shrinks
above the unseen thief
Built on sand my short life sinks
mere fleeting tenure's fief

Oh darling Clepsydra, don't cry
your lacrimae are mine
With every tear I slowly die
my ebbing hours now brine

Carpet Mites

Dessicated snowflakes drift so skeletal and wan
Ephemerally moulted veils fine-spun as faerie's yarn
Gloom's retreat crawls warmly swathed in sullied diamond dust
Thus cloaked, foul hordes elude our eyes and vehement disgust

Whaled Beach

A plain of broken bloodied teeth stretched out beside the dying sea
while foetid sewage gurgles over sand and bones uncertainly
The swollen beach obscenely skinned like some unearthly amputee

Oaken parasite
Kiss me quick beneath the bough
On this New Year's night
