RALPH MONDAY
Will You Raise the Dead
What do you mean? As a tongue speaker Will you talk to me? Will you raise the dead? eyes like the blackened spit of a grasshopper, do you truly know or is it just diseases in your head? Did a razor split your tongue? Where it waggles in two languages. Did you scuttle backwards to magnify your own dung? Will you be like Jesus? Riding on an ass. Spoil your own cathedral mold the communion bread? Say Lazarus talk to me find only perished ears know that your resurrection on vacant bells was rung. Are your empty spaces a product of malfunctioning muses? Sung to Antenora who never drank from Lethe nor saw the golden isle symphonious. Did you manufacture a closing zeitgeist before the cock crowed three times at dawn? A cacophony of excuses, Can you raise the dead?

I have many things to write unto you but I will not write with pen and ink

Survival of the Species
A footprint in the mud fills with rainwater and life begins to evolve. But - a tire tread tracks through it and the water must evaporate.

Tarnished Threads
O black, black the silvered corkscrew Sheen, the green cast of lemon The sour taste of sordid desire Deep you ran And following down I grew To love the silvery hue The shadow of the dusk's dull throb The thrust, the kiss of blackened ivory The silken threads that snapped To reveal The heart's murmurs Faltering, dull deep The play The spectacle of soured wine The lusted longing The lie
