Spotlights Of Disease

 

 

to begin at nothing

is a wrong starting point,

the circle of doubt is polka dotted

in transmigration of holocaust souls.

I want to be, be, be.

What is, is not

the fire in the body.

What is, is not death

but fouled carcasses

bodies devoid of history.

I want to be, be in crucifixes

of self, in edifices

of living when die is cast

nothing, beginning, ending.

Sing a dirge, litany of praises please.

Cast out the flesh, carved from the bodies

which at times transfigured into little

demons of hope.

Ominous spotlights of disease.
