In the Wake of an Attempt to Overshadow Myself

Posted to Action Poetry

To illuminate an improved version of possibility
I’ve run the gauntlet of mind
Made it to the other side
For expressions sake all boundaries were crossed

To stand naked before you
Without skin

Dripping rare flesh to glistening white bone
to notice the coffee stains
the tobacco yellow rose of my teeth
to grind into powder my existence
for bread
to mold
one heal gone
on a window sill wrapped in tin foil for months
to harden for birds to munch
to fly
to fly
to fly
to see all the rotting wasted flesh
waste the wasted
eaten by hawk
to search
to see
to look
to find fresh flesh
warm blood
to drink
to fly
