A House Of Cards Is Fragile


We laid side by side with ancestors.
Smelling their rotting necks
To acquire a scent
Of hickey meditation.

Gave passion
To empty handed gestures.
Like razor blades
In a diagnosed teenager's fingers.
Demonstrating scars
To advertise a life
Of eternal damnation.

On public access,
Watching blue eyes gloss.
As if rain clouds
Weren't enough.

Down the aisle
To a black tie gala.
Confused if the round of applause
Is for charity,
Or the funeral.

Come expiration,
I'll stand at the edge.
Studying the skipping pebble
I kicked,
To discover the darkness
At the end
Of six feet under.

Or maybe,
I'll just close my eyes.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
