I lay up in still sound 
Depicting rigor mortis - down
The rhythm begins as contrabassoon
Ensembles in the orchestral form 
Of your booming thighs
The clasps of tarnished earrings
Made vintage applause
Batting of false eyelashes 
Mimic God blowing purity in a glass jar

Let it sink in...

Like an elephant in the room
These tusks break urns 
And 1940's vases
(Impale the noise)
Still sound of human isolation 
No deprivation 
Just personal meditation
Insatiable hunger for more
Nightly Ramadan season 
I entered the realm of you
As starvation weaves harp strings 
Through and through

Your words belie your age, Anthony.
I think you're an ancient soul.

Another nice piece!

Unique poem and unlike anything I have recently read, does invoke imagery of a hunter.

You always take us to places we haven't been, show us images new, unique; and build within your own voice its own strange extraterrestrial music.
Always well done, my friend.

My first visit, Anthony, and I was glad I clicked the link. Salus was the Roman goddess of well-being and prosperity. May your talent continue to prosper under Salus' beneficence. Very cool piece.
