The Glass Desert by Noah Bradley.


Here is another poem from Oblivion Corpus.

*

You walk about your desert
Always trying hard to avert
Afraid to stay in one place
To disrupt your wicked dance.


Refusing to completely cease
You do traverse the sill
However you leave behind
All your hopes and true mind.


The suffering is deep within
You’re not letting anyone in
To do what you long for and miss
And then say you do not wish

To let yourself off your leash.

eyes, two, marija mrvošević

I still remember those
Suspicious eyes of yours
Dreary, sad and dear
But filled with fear.

They have watched
Vigilantly the world
Confused by change
Usurped and deranged.

In them I have found
That looked for all around
Realization erased my smile
Only now I know why

Those eyes are color of a lie.

Mom’s dandelions.

This poem is oppening to Oblivion Corpus I wrote a while back.


We were strange dandelions
Little, yellow and extraneous
Wind blew followed by a ray of sun
So we became merged as one.

Cursed be that whiffing
Destiny’s thread is pulling
When nature goes on spree
And completely eradicates thee.

In your turmoil you’re not vain
Although in lack of that ochre mane
For I was just about to bourgeon
To me the world wasn’t a burden.

The roots interweave
From confinement no relief
Did what you thought was right
To cut down before we start

My part.
