Who sleeps tonight
searching bullets silencing
the magic of dreams
in tender moments
those fangs of hate
like warm blood
blue water blotting?
Abstract walls rise up, secluded
A visionary in his room
Weighs the unfolding panorama
Like a sheet of snow from winter
Harangues my senses to smear
Impending summer’s proclamation
Splintered in contemplating that rough road
Embellished by iridescent images
They say, may be there.
Should I, then, fight or flow
With glaring demons
Who must measure me,
If dreams and desires
These walls breach?
