Futility is a tempest,

a dreary muse that lingers

O!

A dreary muse that lingers

Stands on the rock calling

Wet hair curling

and sticking like ropes of slug

to her shoulders

*****

Her lips part and speak

the most exquisite language

Eyes cast upward,

arms across her heart

succulent temptation sings futility lilting,

and  free unbound

and ionized self sings muffled….

Gagged and bound,

plates in lips

and,

coils around the neck

choking….. sings…. croaks….

and the clothes that she wore

on the last day of her life lay folded

in a paper bag somewhere

and I wonder…..

If she knew

when

she buttoned those buttons at dawn

****

Dawn breaking……

orange

beneath layers of nightly storm

like some beast stretching it’s wings,

and yawning

waiting, sighing

Angelic bloody fate

to be born
