Sample Text

(From Fine Lament)

 

PRELUDE 

 

redwine and sift
sink into this
safe keeping
thought guarded
by glycerine
and deep screams
no need for politics 

costumed out of
consequence
hark back
permed and pernicious
to frivolity rules
in dark blue
scraping the frame 

three stories of
prophetic wall holding
hidden in fiction
suburbia our
soft furnished strictures
distract through
melodramadaydreams
