Write Out Loud Outstanding Poems for December

entry picture

Repeat to Fade

Splendered, walking half in sleep,
and with red glasses cupping teeth,

photographed like a chimney mooring it's house with poison
steaming it's frames and running the charcoal down my spine.
 
These are my lines.

Came the silk black wings of night

Came the moon birds sweetness calling

Feathering high upon their flight

Mercury stars fire flashing

Dashing

 As though to meet them

Beneath a hunter’s moon for light

 

In the silver bright extolling
