Consumed


All she can ask

Is for a casket

Shrouded shades deceive

As if there is a He

 

Subservience,

Imperialistic Providence

Singing seas in mist,

Metaphysical Nothingness

 

Get out of Paris

It does not exist

Everywhere: the Aran Islands,

Breaking waves in defiance

    And so it goes, hey?

    Very nice words.

  2. Those first two lines are quite stunning. I like the rest, but that is quite a way to begin.

    Thanks for following my Brautigan blog. He too was a poet of few words.
