By gumshoe








on a night  |                           
such as this  |                               
annihilates the                                   
infinite within me                                
the world around me                         
and i let myself go forth_                 
under the skin of the night wrapped in silence      
a tender and unmoving slumber where
     death welcomes me ashore

    Some poems are just so immediate, penetratingly powerful, that they eclipse distances and enter deep into the blood, where we have no choice but to make them our own. Pure poetic magick at play here. ~b
