Poem By Ethan Petersen

Is when we must keep our heads up,
Lest we not see our friends on the horizon.

Humans In Godshells

Some people walk around keeping themselves inside
Wearing masks of perfection to help them hide
Most see the seams –
but I am blind

The Omen

I satisfy “Its” hunger and “It” retreats
Only to return in new form
“It” reaches out with shadowy hand and takes hold

Under the night-sky’s fleece,
A faint glow to keep myself at ease,
While I swim through the sleepy seas,

Laced with venom
Designed to wound
But never fatal

Ears absorbing rabble and ruse indiscriminately
Simple squall
So mundane and effortless
