Rick Davis







your mind is a deep dark rotting kettle

and birdless sky.


peaceful labyrinths cry.

you are a spoiled onion


with no act of contrition.

you are old salt


thrashing out loving bee-keepers.

your god wears a tattered coat.


there are rancid legions at your heel.

perpetual darkness devours Light.


lovingly, our beloved youth

wear white lace


with little to hide

and everything to gain.
