From Dante's Doorstep
What cynical gnostics still rot in this place,
A deadened distemper; dysfunctional chaste.
Enfeebled ideals were deft to portray,
What a vile and detestable role they did play.
They ramped up their vices, consulted in spite,
By demons possessed with a rapturous bite.
Asmodeus, it seems, was well in his season;
As Nietzsche confound to quell with this demon.
A stark reminder of the war at home.
As is mine to relive, I am left to drone;
The blood in my throat, from the debt of a spinster.
Apple's for Eve on the playground of this minster.
And still I parlay, the need to make quarrel,
As the leaves left me poisoned; toxic to this laurel.
I still cry when I smell it, the fire of hatred.
Left to ponder their lies, was nothing left sacred?
Insane I may be, torn and dejected.
I thought in her arms I would be protected.
But fate loathes the calloused, perverse and diseased.
As it saw to keep me in exile, and on my knees.
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
