Demons And Angels
larrylark

Black land runs on,
 1
it's artery's splash blood.
 2
Shrouded grey seascapes
 3
hold onto the flood.
 4
 
 
Furies are stood,
 5
blaze prints on the ground.
 6
Footfalls of demons
 7
singe edges of towns.
 8
 
 
Stretched sinew coils
 9
in cold winds that cut,
 10
fine notions are oiled
 11
behind doors slammed tight shut.
 12
 
 
Through frozen back gardens
 13
night angels depart,
 14
Past tidy apartments
 15
and wild beating hearts.
