Darkness didn’t wait for you.
Consumed by the inevitable fallible petals of lust
It endured you
Then stripped away your logic
deprogrammed your conscious–ness
and waded only to be shaken by the waves of your pain.
Insane, unnamed and taught unlove
Tough what was
For it held the unlocking sensation of libation as it came for fuss-
ing the cusp
grasping the cinder-blocked paved way for such
Are you afraid?
