"Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen" -- da Vinci

To write poetry, you must read and, read some more -- Me

the conversation

he is always near

that fleshless face
a delirium dialect
to antiseptic walls.

he pants, salivates for the last sip
that runs through my veins;

death always complains
about thirst,

he's the dehydrated
dog lapping
illusions of water
from a bowl.

oblivion will not
be satiated until
he cajoles my foot
to follow
its twin through
void’s stream,
where darkness

flows into itself.
