THIEVES OF WORDS

Black hounds
hunting,
black stallions
snorting
hot breath
in a misty contempt
of lyrical dance.
Hungry voids
of charcoal mouths,
ebony teeth
ceaselessly grinding,
silently
tearing paper bones,
sucking marrow
from vulnerable conception,
swallowing
raw embryonic notions
into insatiable,
swirling pit.
Beware
the thieves of words
dressed
in night’s dark armour,
midnight raiders
of dream speak,
riding,
seeking
unprotected stray thoughts
in the shadows
of mind wanderings.
Listen carefully,
I say to you,
capture future vagary
in heart’s web,
embroider threads of light
onto your stretched skin,
root them deep
into tender flesh
to shine forth
elucidation of self
and keep
nefarious beasts
at arms’ length,
so that I may know
my own struggles
are not in vain.

Artist's Description

this past week have been struggling to string words together……almost felt like something crept in and took all the words away.
