Pins And Needles

Poem By Sarah Kennedy

I caught a glimpse
of myself being beaten by
the dawn's early mourning shadows

Prone in the back seat of
a wheeled chariot painted
a dismal shade of yellow

On my way from one random destination
to the next arriving only to leave always
sailing on the airs winged sea

The perfect portrait of an addict
why has Hades chosen me as his canvas
I don't remember auditioning for the part of
Persephone

But there is so much I don't remember
my mind's best elixir
numbly wandering in the underworld

Perhaps someday they will hang the horned God's masterpiece
In a stone gallery next to a nicely
printed card that reads "Untitled"

A Cry For Love But There Is None

The lost must hope
Left but part of absolute
Children cry remember us
Loud tears fall absurdly as

Delicate summer women
With but a kiss on her lip
Wears love like a flower
And desire as a fresh rain

Fire Eater

The enormous blaze of lust is but

A ferocious fire that drives the fools heart
