Random Poem:

Inviolate frontier
NicMichaels

I was bluely born
 1
inside an ache and an absence,
 2
 
 
suburbia struck civilized
 3
into tranquilized mountain.
 4
 
 
You were spit screaming,                
 5
rugged upon wide open -
 6
                                
 7
chaos
 8
 
 
cross fenced with family, violence
 9
and smiles raging. From these cobbled
 10
 
 
beginnings, we stake
 11
a life like our claim:
 12
 
 
Barbed wire meeting
 13
toast points over breakfast, violets
 14
 
 
vased in laced fingers.
 15
