Two Worlds: A Poem

Updated on December 27, 2011

TWO WORLDS


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

Worlds
