trickle down

i am you

 

 

 

..........

 

i am sunrise,

                 a fog,

           a lily pad

        floating in 

      a pond--

 

 

           --(no frog)--

 

 

i am an angel,

                                  dressed in black velvet,

and I only allow the light on my face

                     when the moon

 cannot be seen 

at night,

    to wimper among the rhythm of 

                 slithering snakes in

      the cool night sands,

 

 

i am macerated flesh of 

           a wild animal,

                waiting

   to dry out after the feasting of

              hungry wolves,

 

 

i am a feild of daisies,

            and you have severed my lifeline 

                  to place me 

                           on

        your great-grandmother's hand made

                        doily for your 

pleasure,

 

 

i am an onion,

         bursting with pungent juices

                            to make the tears fall from 

         your eyes like a torrential 

downpour

     in the worst of droughts,

 

 

i am hell fire

          to infinity

 

             and

 

       i am waiting for 

              more,

 

 

i am the gleam

         of a child's 

                        face on    

 christmas morning,

                     and the killer's

grin of      

     

                                                satisfaction,

 

 

and i am the untamed

                     ogre of

grief, the

              grim rapist,

that entices

 your anger,

                                a predator

lusting after your

greatest

                  fears,

 

 

i am the regurgitation of man's worst crime,

                    sin,

                                  sorrow,

                 fear, hope,

                         and desire,

that wallow

 like poison in the pit of his

belly,

 

 

and,

i feel,

 things,

 

 

too.
