Grizzly

Mill Old
 
 

I’ve been here before,
between fences of wakefulness,
frosting bare-toothed
in stripy drift.
 

The tattered angle
of my shadow
remained,
its ebony gore
still caught
in the bear’s black paw
 

while I
slipped away,
 

lost to the drag
and claw of sleep,
grey matter clasping
the grainy snap
of what may
or may not
have been.

Stay

Stay
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

When it’s over
 

when rawthroat simmers
raindrum stills
 

breath deepens
howls subside
 

when jagged moon
tumbles hallelujah
 

dog rose petalfolds
evening moist
 

when cannons quiet
arms circle soft
 

mercury dips cool
on tender tongues
 

when coils

Abattoir

foetal 2
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

foetal position by underdos on deviant art
 
 

Slaughterhouse days,
when the rawbone ache
saws through the haze,
 

splinted limbs
lacerating sinew,­­­­
tearing
at metronomic muscle.
 

Sickly marrow
and soft warm blood
flood
the butcher’s block,
 

as we,
curled foetal
in familiarity,
wait quietly
for the hook.
