Random Poem:

tawdry whits hesitate

that curious tear, a sketch sucked in
by desperate teeth trying to save the shining
face, prophet's pock marks become the lodged
what gloirionn* halo and swallow. divinity in
spitting at giant winds. branches divide. split.
a dormant fire said. watch for halos, watch
for nourishing light. it's blocked now. patience
or monster trees are brought on. stunning wives
so sorry. watch,now.
superhero aspirations. entice the child to be good.
superpowers are possessed. possessed by saints in
want to extract the chain mail. relieve the pain
from the scream of a king. deliver the child.
with hands laid and big shouts at the devil.
