I can still smell the flesh burning from his fingers

and the tattooed reflection descending from his face

still he could never bring to fruition the dreams he always sought


In a shower of amplified waves, screams Machiavelli’s nightmare

as he glides the room, like a murderer, prison-freed

and he looks through stain-glass eyes at a marching band parade Read the rest of this entry »
