Golden Escalator

Poem By Leon Moon

Rotating platforms corrode Mercury streams to incense,
Premature crescendos morph into blind heritages,
Panting, flowering, magenta catacombs wind down sense
To a pulp of morning after imitation, the stage

Decking life as compulsory history for each age;
Starlets suffocate in the web's drainpipes, the pirate's bed
Multidimensionally squanders, exiles, judges the fed
And starved through the chase of dust challenging immense

Simplicity of everlasting dawns, the once untouched
Lantern cheapening dusk, a fairy light of lust, a gage
Unthought, as transmuted as breath, swelling from the last dense

Memory paralysing itself in all forms of silence
Rising from the omelette-making spine of a crying sage;
She's always dead, his long lost love, always expected.

In this endless night
On this Earth I roam,
I am one, alone.

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
