unannounced bursting

from a high mouth

of fountainous red words

spat out with a thunderous voice

rushing skywards from great depths


to be unstoppably heard

to be unstoppably destructive


once released

erases all its molten embrace touches


before cooling into a black crusted wasteland

left behind

for nothing but the lonely gritted wind

to decipher

◄ as though there isn't enough shite in our oceans!!

something less glorious than mud-mud-glorious mud! ►

Leon, this is excellent. Have you ever visited the island of Lanzarote? It is the image of your poem. Well done. Thanks. Keith
