Poems

Maelstrom

In the instant infinity
Between my dreams
As sleep unbreathes
Its night-stitched seams
Into violent awakening

I see a bird with burning wings

Beating my heart murderously
The while it drinks
My stillborn screams
Most savagely
Feathered by fire unrelenting

I see a bird with burning wings

Before my eye's vitality
Escapes that beak
The vision shrieks
Its haunted screech
Through our fading eternity

I see a bird with burning wings

And when it sings
The whole world dies.
