    THE IMAGE–SEPULCHRAL By Patrick M Tracy
    August 28, 2012  Poetry   Tags:   

    The damned are reinvigorated

    in the twilight

     

    their husks

     

    suffused with a new and

    unwholesome potency,

     

    their staggered steps increasing

     

    to a torrent as they

    shamble toward us

     

    these bad dreams that we have

    chosen as our affliction

     

    acting as comparably pleasant

    obstacles to block our view

     

    of the deeper poisons in which

    we wade,

     

    the stagnant demesne

    of the dim priests who have

    gone mad on the power

     

    we favored them with

    so long ago

     

    and all

    the peripheral functionaries

    who benefit just enough

     

    from

    the acts of tyranny that they

    keep silent as the good blood

    runs deep and thick in the

    streets

     

    the salve of our

    small remaining kindness

    exhausted

     

    by the end of the

    work week and replaced by

    numb incomprehension

     

    until there is

    but a small cognitive

    leap between flipping on

    the television set

     

    and

    leaping upon a stranger at a

    filling station, feasting upon

    his flesh until the authorities

    arrive

     

    to drill high velocity

    relief channels in our tombs

    of flesh.
