Nestled amongst the twigs of sleep every night amidst stockpiled straws of stolen sunshine adorned with knick-knacks of living my dreams lie cushioned comfortably ensconced within them is my fledgling poetry
Flapping tenuous wings of a new sprung idea my verse hesitantly will start its lone flight never ambitious enough of owning the lofty sky striving to float free of encumbrances then happy to home in to hospitable hearts.
Charlatan Luna, shining coquettishly in borrowed finery Takes undue advantage of nature binding us in a binary My brightness, my albatross Her luminosity, also my cross Paeans sung in secondary’s praise; I rue being the primary.
Chauvinism’s foot pressed firmly on the reverse gear the cycle of life hurtles at break-neck speed back into the dark ages of yore crushing progress in one fell swoop
Men! Strut your stuff pick up the arms go on a rampage hunt down dissenters as well as naysayers brook no argument cock that snook bam! wham! the sham of civility shattered gleefully justice will be served by the barrel of the gun!
Women! Cross your legs and press your knees together you are being recast as damsels to be disrobed and used as a product your body no longer yours your life worse than chattel barefoot with swelling belly; that’s your destiny.
Rights! What rights! might is right and how can the right be wrong bring forth in this world the unwanted raise an army of abandoned, misfit kids then give them the licence to hunt and gather.
Rejoice! Patriarchy rules again we are in the war zone fodder for the frontline should be churned without shame the darkness of heart envelopes the world maniacs are in charge life is cherished the living be damned!
The grainy texture of hazy memories evokes myriad long forgotten tastes some ambrosial, some miasmic some that leave me pasty faced.
suspended in the half light of living an unnamed bird flutters haplessly singing no song of eternal hope yet it can’t stop whirring its wings endlessly.
tonight the moon’s forehead is lined with worries the fragrant skies will smolder throughout the night heaving under the haze of monochromatic thoughts the sun’s endeavour to slight the moon may never come to light.
time fades bit by bit bleeding every second hunger throbs voraciously in my aching bones tears gather drop by drop in the hollow of my neck I brace myself for the colossal shadows of unknowns.
