Dubh Abhainn Blackburn

Poem By Michael Witkowski

Yawning at the brook
of my last stand
the burn whspers
coolly between stanes
dragging with him
earth of the lush braes
i watch my demise
full control swept
a gun to the throat
yearn yearn my fate
is fulfillled to the bitter
core - hands splashed
with sticky wine
rise to heavens -leaving
a prayer to the
doop doop singer.
i like it loud. a whimsical
coy churl spent all
seeds in disgrace
now i'm endowed
with a gown

gut muscles grumble- and legs shiver
but memories set in as a ray of honey

Cinnamon Goat

A right cinnnamon goat he was

shy on the dance floor
thought himself be stepping forward

The Slushy Fate of Cheese With The Mantis

I am scared by the fire
I am scared by my self
i- whose force unknown
may drag this hand into the red


how hurt
transplants itself from nerve
to nerve
spreads like a flush
