Random Poems of November

In the Distance

On the horizon
a shaft of flaxen sunlight
angles through gray clouds


Fabled City

Silent cities lay dormant
Cracked open by mighty weeds
A canyon of dilapidated towers
stretches into the distance
and fades into vague greenery
the last human standing
should turn off the world.


The Beast

Veils and shadows billow in the darkness
Light glints and rolls off the dragon-skin
“There’s something out there, isn’t there?”
“Oh, yes. She’s a mighty fine beast, in deed.”


You Know Me?

The “me” you know had to die.
So I pushed him off the world.
