expedient bondage

Hyacinth garden

babel dire as biblical

dominance of white noise

print on her adornment

while smoke signals train

her back against the wall

this is no woman's land

            intimate friend,

visionary soul

her fickle heels

dance on broken stone

brown eyes

with tears like raindrops mix

with blood seeping through


she is glittering like the moon


as if mingling seductively

as skin splits in the darkness,              

                  night of the vulnerable

inhabiting imagination

within this idyllic illustration

                         expedient bondage,

for her promiscuous monarch

of unyielding bare bone

find satisfaction

in the middle of

turbulent core

while his spirit requires

that the world learns
