Ending The Nerve

Poem By Leon Moon

The disease! — Wandering aimlessly,
Prophet of Waterfalls; —

The disease! — Tearing curtains,
Amputee of Blackness; —

The disease! — Abolishing shores,
Sainthood of Hysteria; —

The disease! — They have no idea!
Every burbling shell, ferociously tuned
To the disaster of surprise; —

They have no idea, no idea they have it!
Each one infected, immune to their destiny,
Glorifying a stupidity I can never be lost in; —

The disease! — No, never!
Death dramatises catalytic boredom,
Deafens the chimney, —

No, never!
Death offers nothing but reluctancy
Either because it is the notion of nothing
Embodied without it's knowledge,

The glory of a God
Who can't be trusted,
Or exactly what I expect
Neglected to the solitude of freedom,

Or all three! — No, never!
Never, the disease! — The disease! —
The disease! —

What sort of bullet creates the time to assess itself?
Will there be an end to the will of questioning?
Is that it; — ridge and ridge, person and person, the melody of merry-go-rounds…

Never; — The disease! —

Seeking Byzantium

My mind is a wasteland of eternal fantasy
And to see, is to hustle mirages of old age
Bowing to youth in despairing barbarity.
I am no more than a silhouette evoked with rage;

Alone On This Site

The Sun has not yet rose.
In this endless night
On this Earth I roam,
I am one, alone.

Rivers Of The Universe

Rivers of the Universe
Exile marble neophytes
In ducts faithless as Dawn:
Such freedom condemned to verse,

To The Black Muse

O' watery Muse of transparency!
Entwined within exaltation's summit
Eclipsing, from throats, vales of poesy
For the will of a canopying Hermit,

The 9th Song

We hold divinity upon our fingertips
And destiny within the cresses of our lips;
The embryo of desire, beyond sense,
Unlock's memory's key to existence—

Virginal Boy

Then, with a weak hand, he wrote:
‘I must stop dreaming, I am nearly seventeen,
To forge that grand old age bespoke
I mustn't rest in an evocation wisdom has yet seen
