    Pedagogy and History

    Requiem assigned
    virgin, penitent minds
    shackled to words
    with rimming pictures
    that shutter the lens
    storybook clutter
    now dead men talk
    their calcified bones
    dance on the canvas
    suborned...

    Spent Days

    Night scrawls the horizon
    sentient swells secede
    into the cavernous abyss
    reams of black stenciled
    over soft blue pastels
    as the scorching eyes
    of Zeus's brigand minister
    swoon through a paler...

    Saloon Girl

    Brimming from Weston cusp
    shady eyes, arched brows
    ensconced in denim folds
    whitewashed dreams
    borne by a Wrangler ego
    bourbon-laced strains
    exuding from profane lips
    buckskin tread tracing...

    Thanks for your kind comment, Alfonso. Thanks for the post mortem analysis, Taylor (just kidding). It was but a brief moment in time, but it was a memorable one.

    I think that this melancholy suit fits well. The rejoinder of an expressionless mime. His lack of feeling only spurs the ingratiated minds of the living to seek further solace. I like the Imploring...

    Death's Brief Interlude

    I stumbled on a funeral march
    whose circuit had been completed
    an ebony line lay in repose
    as a somber conclave hovered
    'neath a starched canopy

    Under the patchwork tent
    time seemed to stand...

    A Lunar Beacon

    Wrapped in cellophane
    the night to strain
    its mellow chalice
    brimmed with starry sighs
    but a gaunt replica
    of day gone by
    haunting my every move

    Only a distant shadow
    parading 'neath its...

    Red Light District Starlets

    A sparkling twinkle
    brims empty cavity
    seamless grooves bridge
    a parody of lines
    beauty and frailty
    skin and marrow
    parabolas spindle
    soft-spoken words
    swindle the sighs
    bleached-over veins

    This is a riveting poem, sir Delta. Why not much fanfare from the literary audience; I do not know. I do think that 'dresses' or 'coats' would sound better than 'suits'. Also, the subject-verb...

    Yes, I think so. The sunset signifies that the sun's energy has been expended for the day, likewise the couple's days have culminated into an exhaustive and unfulfilling expenditure of time.

    Last Vestiges of Love

    As the sun sets in your eyes
    through the clouds
    strains a filtered guise--
    the scattered pixels from
    the grainy carbon of our daliance
    retreating from the horizon.
    Left on the cerebral cusp...

    Indelible Marks of Love

    The caretaker of my dreams:
    girdled my hearth
    with her warm blanket
    over the years
    covered my bough
    with chiseled rings,
    reams of indentured pulp-
    fibrous stencils
    etched with memories...

    A colorful description of the twilight milieu! It is as if you were standing on a distant cliff, nature's grand stage, watching the Day's parade drift past you. I enjoyed the pageantry!

    Moonstruck

    Casting a tent
    under the pale moon
    my tawny fibers
    her bleached strands
    wrapped in a silver cocoon
    flung into orbit
    earth's baser elements
    soaring in a comet's tail
    my coarser part,
    shards...
