The SparrowWhitherto doth flight aspireIn the rose's company unto Nordic strifeDoes a sparrow, higher alightWhen under his wings burns a viking pyre.Damnèd be the man eaten by firewhen mourned by softly blowing fifeheld aloft by those who ended his mightfortuitously among the battle's ire.Dead, jaundiced eye in sodomyFlatters the heavens with glazèd gazeWhen vitreous humour happily bubblesUnder the pearly cornea that he,Murderous, navagated life's maze.The sparrow flies, unmoved, sans trouble.Hoarding scores of scarèd boneWhich twitch in wild erratic rhythmTo dance under his mud feathers givenWith fortitude flies every meter thrown.'Neath him speaks the women in hushed toneAnd sadly they are broken within-Their souls. Hardened husk that no more is driven.Whence cynical weeds- gluttonous hath grown."Harken, attend! All thy wills be heard,Kind of the Gods- may look to thy hand-with favour.

The Dying ThroneA dead man lays his head to restacross a withered wooden grainsitting royally atop his thronehead back observing his court.His wrists bestowed with leatherHis belts buckled to the tightand the tarnished silver gleamingresting snug to his cadaver.A restless maid bathes his haira sponge rests atop his wet headwhile his crown is nestled neatthe man relaxes in the bed, proper.His eager subjects gather 'round.An excited chatter and crowd circle,the man waves farewell triumphantly,a last smile: electricity applied.

Jigsaws Raining UpTo lay astonded, as I watch carefully,the clouds assemble themselves above.My head touched by the intimacy ofthe understanding of their love.Their jagged edges touch to invitea wistful breeze to bring them together,o're my body as their willess livestravel amid the mild, tepid weather.And when that snow or rain or sleetdances, pounds, slaps insistantly,might I stay and watch those cloudswhile their edges fit, still perfectly.Towards such a dark and rainy roadmy feet bear this heavy burden of me.And away from paths traveled beforegleefully I'm led further to the sea.Once an occurance in my universe,before called by my mother 'Dinner, sup!'With an intrepid glance to high above,Thought I, "My walls are jigsaws raining up."
