Poetry Book Wednesday – Vervain & Vice

This week’s Poetry Book Wednesday feature is Vervain & Vice which was published on August 11, 2015. It is the seventeenth book I published. The writing process of Vervain & Vice happened during a time of transition and immense stress for me which prolonged the time it took to create as well as encouraged a sense of twisted creativity that resulted in very beautiful poetry.

Poetry Wednesday – Tinsel

Tinsel

Angels without wings
You are so determined
Make them whole
With tinsel and garland
Leaving them tangled
Worse off than before
Still you collect wishes
With tinsel and garland
Angels without wings

Poetry Wednesday – Fangs

Fangs

When days close down
And become a new light
I feel heavy under weight
Fangs brutal in my flesh
Pull me down into myself
A new cement block
Within the confines never
See true boundaries of
Restless in the repose
Falling star battles for false
Sense of superiority left blind
When days close down
And become a new light
I feel heavy under weight
Fangs brutal in my flesh

Poetry Wednesday – Tragic Magic

Tragic Magic

Tragic magic falling
In reverse disaster
Turn melodies into Queens
Forgotten to their maladies
Tragic magic falling
In a hole ten miles
Wider than it dug
Impossible impostors
Next to the guard towers
Tragic magic falling
In reverse disaster
Turn maladies into Queens
Forgotten to their melodies

Poetry Wednesday – Empty Houses

Empty Houses

All alone in houses empty
Makes it easier to see
World for what it
Became detached
A victim without a gun
Does not feel the same
Diluted see through runs
Down the lines barely held
All alone in houses empty
Makes it easier to know
What sage removes smoking
Cleanse waves detached
A victim with a gun
To hold when wicked comes
