Words Beside Words

A Poem

Seraphic day dream
eyes like lanterns
the color of a melody in C
Rain taste humid lips.

An iron door
an impassible minds eye
The stubborn guide stones of reality
Snow flecked with blood.

Unhallowed halls
Livid greying life
The shallow end of a pool
Art that doesn’t belong in a museum.

Do not convince me otherwise
Stop the tantalizing tidbits
Bread blackened eyebrows
Samurai’s in the fall of Rome.
