Two Worlds: A Poem

Updated on December 27, 2011


A weighted helmet

Sits on my crown

Strains my neck

Turns my gaze down

Towards my feet

Roots in the ground

Moods aggravated

Beyond control


Boulders between blades

A rock and a hard place

A smile on a dark face

Graphite laughs

Blend into the page

Crumpled in palms

And thrown away


A doomed repetition

Macabre reanimation

Gravity is molasses

Around these parts

Invisible traditions

Silent compositions


From the pit

Beneath the stage

Catacombs contain

Bones of slaves

Different chains

To rebel against


A world engrained

In such hatred

Despite detriment

Order my steps

Through cement

Sit in wet paint

Stuck and stained


A park bench statue

Where pigeons roost

On heavy truth

Accessories to a

Chain mail suit

The weight of two
