electrocution

Posted to Action Poetry




a body rises above
the ashes
of the former self
purgatoried
eyes crossed out
hatching abyssed
and vultured eggs
i look at the reflection
is this me?
i've been electrocuted
rocked and gravelled
to a fine powdery soot
i've been excavated
from the stone
from which i was born(e)
head and ankles
twisted in knots
like stagnant branches
kicking from the inside
to the outside
and so forth
amidst poisonous clouds
