all our ashes

...

they have come to burn us down
raze each temple to the ground
with all of the casting done
remember to cut out your tongue
plant it in the good earth, there,
below the rain and sun
underground, below the light
the buds grow from eternal night

...

what they don't know
is that the fire that they grow
shines the light, the light
that casts the shadow

...

all our ashes in the haven
wishes

first draft.....blanks to fill in

tidal waves
over unmarked graves
i am ghostly, lonesome
like dreams gone from waking
like breath for the taking
but never gone

to my surprise
i all but died

if you can not find the albatross
you can ask the cormorant
which way i went
i swear he knew it when
he saw his own skin
in the light

on the water
as shadows
they sailed away
to new names
my sons my daughters
my Black Hawk
blind and shamed

if you can not find the albatross
you can ask the cormorant
which way i went
i swear he knew it when
he saw his own skin
in the light
