Random Poem:

death as a simile for death.
unknown

joints creak                                like death.
 1
arms spread                               like death.
 2
men crawl                                  like death.
 3
the spirit dies                              like death.
 4
 
 
groaning bridges waver
 5
in the sky's nest
 6
 
 
eggs fall
 7
down
 8
to their,
 9
into
 10
death
 11
 
 
the chicken came before the
 12
skeleton,
 13
and clucked its beak
 14
in patterns;
 15
death
 16
 
 
men crawl into their graves
 17
as if scenting their mothers
 18
womb,
 19
eyes trail follow tongues pointed finger
 20
and arms spread
 21
to smother us,
 22
all around.
 23
dirt embraces.
 24
 
 
everything is as it should be
 25
in peace,
 26
in dreams in
 27
death in
 28
in death.
