Pyroclastic Serge

His name though it be allowed

Just a dull clod of earth’s gob

Dribbling down his face


The silent age of stubble

Clings and ramifies

Flanks unbowed

Coruscating green warmth 


Underfoot we dig

She deceives the benighted

Cold is her heart

Her art is treachery


Murmurs of deep red blood!

Eddying inside her

Innards flow like water

Unseen they boil


Earth’s umbilical cord

Defies in its severance

Spurting veins unseen

Upward ever upward


Mercurial mother

Mirthless in her ironclad might

Her birth means death

She knows only wrath


Our children!

Their screams!

Run with us!

We echo theirs with smiles of futility.


Seeking the light

She rages and runs us down

Merciless huntress

Disemboweled by time


Futility marks the day

With blackest ink

A quill of fire

Strikes out those who flee her blight


Seared lungs freeze in perpetuity

The flame of Rome’s might


In roiling walls of soot


We cower without sanctuary

Writhing our perennial scream

Marks the scrape of frightened mouths.

Unearthed we huddle and breathe


One lingering ossified breath of love and finality.

Interesting work. The ego bursts with all of the attention from such a talented individual! How does one deserve the time and effort that you spend creating this . . . stuff?
Reviewed by Karen Palumbo 11/4/2008
Very descriptive in such an expressive manner, the finality of it all, well written...

Be always safe,
