Averno - Poem by Morgan Michaels

Evil meer, where birds vanish
Dial, freed from the tutelage of the sun
Well of foul wishes, sailed by ghost-galleys:
Hell, beneath you, blows gaggles of bubbles-
Born of own lewd laughter
Freeing venoms that flap off, bursting,
Leaving to dream a mirror
That turns to heaven a once-again innocent face.
Thin thoughts walk about your shores
Out of your skies cry lamentations, gongs,
Odd barkings. Into your plain
The sun slips a ray:
It blazes- you lighten; It dims- you darken.
Tide-less, your shoals hush the whispers of reeds
