Off the sands of time,
I race to Grandfather Clock.
My broken shells are gone.
The beach is empty.
But salt and canvas.
What new life
Can I create?
Enjoy an Excerpt
I wish I was a canary Trapped in a cage, But I’m not. That suggests elegance-Some beauty left.
But there isn’t. Reality. Hysteria.
I am in a prison. Metal rusted. Bars bent. Buried in a pit.
He turned my hands To slugs, My feet to spiders.
Drenched in his deeds, I am weighed down. Tainted by venom. All of my company Is a snake, So starving, It devoured me And itself.
Chewed and shed itself whole. The only remains In this awful pit, Are raw and honest. Bones and skins. Hollowed eyes, And bloody goblets Of wine he drinks While he chuckles Amused by his work.
