Helical Protozoan

Poem By Leon Moon

Helical Protozoan -
Who put the potential
For me to ask who
Put you there? -
(Except me!)

I have run out of lives.
To me, they are homesick
Each is a light switch
Without sound;
A thing, unbearably worthless.

To think, we long for lies;
Defended with fury
And without mercy
Against ourselves:
For you, I am not yet.

Ah, the desireless...
Founded to impress,
Nurtured to digress,
Without womb;
For you, I am silent.

Helical Protozoan -
Who put the potential
For me to ask who
Put you there? -
(Except me!)

I cannot face myself
Unless I cannot see,
I do not find out,
Though, she lives;
I have run out of silence.

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
