red dress and safety pins

dusty blue,
the eyes of an angel
brighten the abandoned skies,
capturing
my thoughts
as I aimlessly roam
the frozen tundra,
in search of lost time,
hiding behind the simplicity of words
masqueraded as a poet
the raven,
tears flesh from the bone,
pointing the way,
broken wings,
the pleasure and pain,
within the ecstasy,
of a garden of unwritten script,
love lost,
with the stroke of a pen,
the blink of an eye,
the wink of an eye,
the nod of an head,
strewn with empty graves,
and weeping bards,
surrounded by the bleach bones,
of whale song,
beyond the times,
of mortal men,
opening,opening,opening,
the mystery,
locked inside my addled mind,
ten thousand broken wings,
are released,
from the tip of my pen,
innocent of sin,
filled with thoughts of love
bodies shed ,
loose threads strewn,
lost souls,
hand in hand,
stand alone in the gutter,
in the dead of night,
through sullen eyes,
as ink filled skies,
ten thousand bloated flies,
kiss the moon,
writing their song,
even death walks away,
with his head hung low,
ashamed of humanity,
the world,
explodes within my psyche ,
sending the words ,
of a simple man,
beyond the milky way,
enticing my soul,
as my thoughts wander,
beyond the concept of time,
in search of purple dreams,
plumes of thick blue smoke,
carry me away,
on the wings of death,
by the light,
of the fading moon,
I place the gun,
upon the ground,
watching the spirits soar,
writing these words,
upon the door steps of hell….
