The Insanity is Dead…

It is so cold here beside the sea, once

a place of clandestine love.  The

bastard has died, and very angry I

stand in the shadows of these ivory cliffs

with salt mist swirling around my frailness.

Oh God!

There were good memories, here

near the water, hope came into our new

world.  Soon after I grasp for salvation, “He”

the sinful one came and the good “ONE”

vanished.

Nowadays, I stand old and grotesque against

the wind, emotional, filled with sadness.  The

insanity is dead… I can trust, thirst for happiness,

his evil spirit gone from me forever.  Yet, I am too

old; my future is among the ashes of my yesterdays.

What a great visual to brighten our day; and I love the words in this poem…”Blow the skirts of the night”. OUTSTANDING! Visit this site and see more of the same wonderful post. AJM

Poesy plus Polemics

marquees explode
man-made novas
unleash their solarian glare
blow the skirts of the night
from theatrical legs
unabashedly poised for applause
alluring with tattoos
of titillant scenes
and greasepaint aromas
competitive colors
chase circlets of decadent
halos for playwrights

I am Death Walking…

I hear music floating in the trees.  I see

magic in the clouds. I can almost see

tomorrow.  I want the pain to end…

I am death walking.

I pretend to be at peace, to protect

and comfort others.  I worry about the

ones I leave behind.  I want the pain to

end… I am death walking.

I have touched the face of an angel.

I cry for those, I love.   I am at peace.

I want the pain to end… I am death

walking.

I understand the Will of God.  I know

In truth lies freedom.  I dream of my

celestial home and I smile.  I want the

pain to end… I am death walking.

Two poems published in B O D Y

It is wonderful to see poetry published. AJM

Brandon Amico

I’m thrilled to share that the wonderful online journal B O D Y has published two of my poems, “When the Snake is Dead” and “Postcards from Hell” on their site.

B O D Y is based out of Prague, and features work from all over the world, which is exciting, and on a certain level, necessary. It’s a terrific publication, and I highly recommend spending some time on their site (they are regularly rolling out new poetry and prose, nearly daily) and sending your own work if you have something you think they’d like.

Many thanks to editors Joshua, Christopher, and Stephan, as well as everyone else at B O D Y. Happy to see two poems that mean a bunch to me featured there.
