Rape of the Crock

First rhyme ever sent

caused pain

 

soulful literary gallant

hung up on me

 

never spoke

to me again.

 

In poetry hung

a deadly fore-edge

 

did not fully comprehend

bloody ravening

 

demonographer

sword swallowing my pen.

 

Its brazening out

after hungers

 

raw tragic meat –

beset with lash

 

turbulent flashes

bonking sacred crucifixions

 

hog wild

gallows heat.

 

A haunted herd

of dense neurotic nimbo

 

terror beauty

martyry –

 

Spirits rose and balked

at the throws

 

fey shadowy torture

din sinister abandon

 

lurching bottomless

drupaceous pits.

 

A swoon sepulchral

of illaqueate infinites.

 

Love kneeling beside

wan lugubrious insurrections

 

turning with contempt

sinking into cunning swirls

 

of sorrow – contrary

doleful unrepentant.

 

Hermes – that divine conveyor

of underworld souls

 

reverser of hooves, subsequently –

upturned the whole bowl

 

staging hunger and grief

to wisdom of a thief.

 

Heedless flowers

balled up, inhaled

 

at safecrack in crime,

guardian ghosts

 

of the indomitable,

sweet predatory riprap

 

mirific, subline

obduracy of rhyme.
