THE ETERNAL INSCRIPTIONS


36

i

Poetry has been sufficient
To console all my senses
At the scenes of desolation of my life
Tragedies of intimacies rigged
The enormous continent of poverty

ii

That I have witnessed, perhaps
Words gave me a signifying shelter
That I live with like a beautiful skin
I can’t control my appetite for language
It courses through me like a drug

iii

Poetry has been sufficient
To give me strength in months of famine
When I have starved myself of
Social contact, I have been fed
By wrapped innocence of idealism

iV

Coined in passages of stanzas
The fragrance joy of high wonders
Cast in the shadows of ominous alphabets
Poetry has been sufficient
Like two human figures recklessly

V

Exposed, the vitamins of creation
Poetry has been my escape into hunger
A kind of permanent hunger for
A better world, expressed in dream-lyrics
A loving sanctuary of the canvas of gold

UNTIL BIRD-RACKETING DAWN


35

When night comes back
Back in black with her Royal dreams
Death with lift us all apart
Though aging does that just fine
Our wings of where we
Once flew, the sunlit open skies
And when red breaks out

Blood-dropped Sunsets spill
Across the ancient Lullaby
Of the setting West alongside
All that we once held dear
That nightlong spin on Time
Peels the stars from our rooftops
A canopy of light-hunted mistresses
All screaming the same name, LIFE.
