Pika Pika (Toebirds & Woodlice - page 12) Copyright © Leilanie Stewart 2012 A multi-faceted crystal when hung in the eyes of a house will break the bad feng-shui In the uterus of an empty place it’ll grow, filling the void with the nectar of new energy The sun will soon be siphoned off The light will not be shared. *** Voodoo (Metamorphosis of Woman - page 8) Copyright © Leilanie Stewart 2012 Sometimes I wish I could be one of those people who write nice, neat poems about winter, or cats, but life simply hasn’t made me that way. I had my innocence knocked out by a concrete block that hit my head, and narrowly missed severing the connection with my soul. I’m basically a second-rate voodoo zombie working the fields all day and stopping only to eat. Hopefully the poison will wear off soon When it does, I’ll leave the daily grind for good.
