Drowning Angels

This picture is entitled, "Blind Flight".

Drowning Angels

The echoes of
unspoken words
are prayers
to drowned angels
caught in the fishing nets
of blind men.

They pull in their catch
and dine on angelic flesh
only to sprout wings,
take flight,
lose their boat,
and fall into the sea.

Ill at ease with stolen wings
they rip them from their backs
renounce their claim on divinity
and die as men
that know the comfort
of regret.

Domesticated Magicians

This picture is entitled, "Lonely Familiar".

Domesticated Magicians

the remnants of whispers
dangling between
dead lovers.

(leathery sacs
that catch on the ridges
of queasy fingertips)

stuff them in your mouth;
feel them envelop
teeth and tongue
as they spread to moist throat.

Each urge to cough
is a bruised word
that slips on bloody lips
and drops
into the pockets
of fallen magicians
who have sold their secrets
in order to secure
a home in heaven.
