Bender

alone

Taste my eyes
Pulsing embers
Burning bridges
Bourbon benders
Stagnant pools
Beyond rememb-
Rance
Beyond the reeling
Confused genders
Fatherless, forsaken
Mentor-
Less
Stuffing my ears
Against the never-
Ending keening
The screaming
Praying for an aura
The aurora
Borealis where kings and demons
Hold hands in plundered splendor
Dance a staccato rendered
Wanton
And tell me
You know
Tell me
About
Frosted Novembers
Stacked blackened
Coughing timbers
Bones licked bare
No more pretenders.
Forever
I’ll walk alone
And watch the world burn.
