a good night kiss

how it is so that smiles are dripping down his chin
and his eyes are capturing rainbows in their delight, oh!
“Annihilation,” the world cried.

he is the abysmal beauty in the hourglass of night, he
stands tall like a crane snatching stars from the sky, oh!
“Annihilation,” the world cried.

how he traces the outline of his cracked lips and digs into
napalm skin, how his saliva coats the lengths of desires, oh!
“Annihilation,” he cried.

he falls down the cliff, and breaks open like dreams; he sings.

Linking it up with the prompt titled “the sisters Death and Night ~ Micro Poetry” at With Real Toads.

    (jabblog here) ‘smiles are dripping down his chin’ – what an inspired phrase. A poem to declaim – are you a performance poet?

  5. Annihilation Indeed, he had it coming to him. Were that all the Bad A’s were Humpties like he was.
    We were taught in the Army that the ‘bad’ fall down the stairways regularly. And don’t complain.
