Poem of the Day
Stage: integrities (2)
a pulse with no body a sun with no skyTaken from 'IT'...
a gathering warmth that beats in the sand
blood that consistently drives up the fever
in houses whose pipes should have water instead
a fever that worships its own fever-nature
and moves itself outside where everything stays
where snow with its striking and subzero culture
burns into the body like rags set ablaze
a grief with no luxury a pillar with no base
a body that's lost the code of its entrails
a shred of a brain an unusual clutter
telegrams missing the planet by miles
