Memories Awash from Past - MyBlogUs
Memories awash from past, wearing chains that deaden the nerves. This is again, a fool’s paradise. I swim to swat my labyrinthine square. I never had the feeling that night’s end might be the last departure to leave behind a magenta sky. Forlorn, I must walk away from heritage as a heresy. I choose the road that mixes flame and figments of the imagination to outdo the flush of satire. Never do I detail my ignorance as such when I tell the truth, and in the sapphire gardens, I roll away laughing at my choice.

*
twice the lightning struck
to banish
poisons of life
*
an older man on a moonlit night
at the brothel —
lights suddenly die
*
a magenta bird
of yesteryear’s dreams
paces in the garden
*
though meaning
is magnetic
the sky is electric
*
the women
with their silver words
quench dry throats
*
the vortex of time
is loud with whispers
from the other side
*
at the liquor store —
eyes pause
near a kingfisher
*
has the sun has left you?
the evening calls
it is autumn
