Nightshade


Bartered corpuscle
Sanctioned vitality restricts the free
And so.

Floating along
In a lake
Cayenne interludes guide the hand

A dramatic rendition’s perfected pitch,
“Perdition is close.”   Blind nomad, picket sign.  Feller, it’ll be fine,
“Iniquity surrounds,” as he points at me.  Sigh.

Maintaining the eye contact of your ghost
Is crucial as curricula fades.  SEE
Vital.  Vitae. Vali

Forcible endeavors cleavers confuse for vision
Chop. Chopping. Chopped. Done
Smock Red. Incision dug.

Bine, shimmy legs unto back
Nightshade courtesan unveiled
 Bitter yet with berries black.  Dwale.  

Veni, Vidi, Vici
Rikki-Tikki-Tavi
At times, even the valiant must die.

  1. haha that was a fun post, great job using playful words with a more serious type undertone. Rikki-Tikki-Tavi was my favorite one..haha

    Yeah and you really should get on bloggers ass, as no one can see your new posts in their blog roll still.

  2. Thanks Pat, I had some fun with this one, mixing a whole sort of references in here. Yeah it does have a serious undertone to it, but glad you saw the playfulness to the piece, was hoping people would get that. As for the Blogger, I've written them, and another poster wrote them on my behalf as well- but guess they have the robot working because it's probably somehow my mistake. Hopefully they fix the problem or at least respond to me, in the forum too, so i don't know what else to do about it. Thanks again.
