Random Poem:

our dominion
chartreuse

in our dominion, our backs are broken
 1
and we lie like slaughtered swans
 2
in the center of the lawn
 3
when will discovery crystallize
 4
our untimely demise?
 5
 
 
life has crushed us slowly
 6
as the petals that float to our faces;
 7
but what we have not forgotten,
 8
twilight softly erases
 9
 
 
skin that scatters
 10
falling to the ground like snow
 11
until winter will replace us
 12
with ice that breaks like bones
 13
 
 
when will our worst fears
 14
be recognized?
 15
when someone turns us
 16
onto our sides
 17
