A Windless Journey To D by Bruce McRae

A Windless Journey To D by Bruce McRae

A poem about a man trampled

by starlight, his ropes creaking.

The man as a red berry crushed

between god-teeth, a blood-fat flea,

his bones carved into dice, man-guts

fluttering like flowery ribbons, the

Black Lord’s soul-clamps straining

to be purposeful, flesh creeping as

they opened up his skull that night,

the hard-as-diamond cranium, with

a titanium-coated handsaw. Do you

know that taste, our disappointment?

Here I am, the man insists,

more of a threat than an answer.
