Failure (Vol.1)

Poem By Leon Moon

Eyes of frangible glass, skin weaved from shards.
As if concatenated to make his father proud,
He fashions his strut of memory, the dull cards
Of a suit that has creased from praying out loud.
His pale thighs and Sun-lined locks
Bind the conspiring old ladies to his owl-eyed heart,
Bustling whispers and toots of impetuous stokes arise! ridiculously fluffed flocks
Crowd the horizon- he has no room for them in his facade, the solitude of his art.
He has honed his throat to a scythe, a bloody carousel
Of inundations that rock to his contempt and melt
Into tiny statues of war for his design of love, the artless hell.
His hair, lineal protection, ancestors locked by Ouroboros belt,
(The cotton lined egg smudged in fingerprints) was a reflection.
Often, he tries hatred, out of fame or curiosity, for a style or mature breath
But usually induces wings and comments on his imprisonment, his sacred genuflection,
Succumbing to what he does not to believe, his prey, his vanity, his hell, his death.

But often, he thinks of his father, and never forgets...

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
