GODLESSNESS

Traveling East
to West
toward fists & devils
not scared of beauty



or
believing
faith
drenched
in Sarcastic drones
who is where and when?
aroused in grief
on hellish slide
S/he sings porous sequences
of yellowed weather
four legs
on the physical
ground
thinking
…of purgatorian death-splat
an orchid on fucked-hollow
plead kneel plead
or no
speechless, we deceive.




In awe of cosmic faces
delighted
in spells
of painted ecstasy
like Aliens in ice
atmospheres resolute
clinging to brighter ideals
star-lit fevers
in rings of dust
a confusing pale
nakedness and scream
fractured bones
in pictures
like frost
overwhelming & glassy.
