Taste of Dust

Today’s poem comes from “an old Texan punk” who is “trying to make it in this sea of madness” and as an infinitesimal point may sometimes come to a point of explosion. {Singularity} With the knowledge that this universe is a part of him, voice of a pulsar, burning across the empty spaces, he looks at the past, whilst he might feel the mourning sing, vibrations in the dawn, o’er the graying mountains, blue faces have now gone. {Morning of Mourning}

and iron limbs

downtown sandstorm in the boroughs

the taste of dust

and ashes in my mouth

Pulverulent colossi groaning from

the bloody hands of undead men, 

tainting a loving belief

seek with daggers of speed

to murder those pictures

of an ideal

The hymn of great sorrows

mirrored in every home

victims and heroes all

lay down that eve in burial shroud

the taste of tears and ashes

in our mouthes 

And where

do good men seek

a reason for atrocity bound

innocence claimed for naught

but the taste of dust

and ashes

fires burned at the peaks

broken angels falling to earth

and all who bore witness

could do naught but weep

for what was undone

a kingdom forever changed
