The recital!

The words
were floating through the air
on silken threads
of long forgotten dreams
of a past never lived,
I waited patiently
for the poet to take the stage
and leave Manhattan
alone,
the thunder roared
as the eagle devoured the desert
the sky was broken and dying
the crowd were in awe
god closed its mind and hid in fear
of the retribution of humanity
behind a broken moon
he cried
bowed his lonely head
weeping tears of
anguish
upon a morbid wind
possible a lie
or so i was told
I just sat in silence
for my mind was in an abyss
left behind
in a two room building
hanging onto the battycattered shores
of a faraway land
so many years ago
when the hatred of humanity first
entered my being
even though the sounds that surrounded me
were barely audible,
yet still poetic
purdy even
in a sad sort of way
some would even say sublime
possibly even divine
especially
if you were just a figment
of ones imagination
aren’t we all?
the roses bright red
who would ever thunk such a ting
the sky aqua blue
the night belonged to love
belonged to me
maybe even you
death smiled as it watched intently
from above
the birds,the cats ,the dogs,
domestication on display
they were all there
the flowers, the trees,
ohh the bloody trees
all soo beautiful
until I opened the door
and walked outside…………………………..

The recital!
