CULLING

END OF AGE

ABSTRACT IN LOVES PAINTING

no more grey outlawed
memories now created in the museum
loves given before
ended crawling across revolving doors
paying the price
eating ate criminal time
singers hang where the notes ran
echos never return
beaten colours in plastic graveyards
rings never float before dawn

swirling chemical rainbows
injected grieving fluidity
naked untouched artist frames
glide into skinless steel
click
click
the ruby red shoes

Forests burn self-inflicted choice
rags bleach in pleading poverty
as shop shrines bleat
selling the devils horn
vacant yet locked
huge stone crutches
spear the bleeding sky

weeping through an acid smile
laying beneath the turf and a wooden stile
neatly blessed cremated sighs
placed far from the sights
as universe breaks across heated red shores
handles turning vital
swallowing perfect white-crested waves

left-right
between grinning toothless lines
on loose dark oceans
stride into broken stride
I carry my bones
and this soul floats
on a violet string -its helium vacation

This culling of vanished spirit
those sharp scissors
parental kindness has cut
the hood of adult
 rip my flesh on gifted wire

pleasant to feel

 
soaked in crimson

left-right
stride into stride
passing violent
static storms
stride into stride
I am yours
