New Poetry Wednesday – Beast


behest to sing out the beast
explaining wounded feet
cut off in secondhand scenes
start to sing when money dreams
behest to sleep
seeing me on the sidelines
marking road hazards
under blizzard howls
dig up the roadbed
bury sounds up to necks
sliced and severed
cut off in deleted scene
left all over the lion’s den
behest to grave pride
beastly correlations
lost in translation
