  197.     

Death on the Road

The rabbit ran
The car careered on
Night blacked out the way
To see the rabbit gone;

But only after flesh had writhed
Exposed inside a twilight world
Where death betrays the state
Of consciousness:

Romanticism doesn’t play a part
In death for the rabbit –
Such plays the oddity of human minds
That we would tell it in a poem.

Here comes a fox –
For life depends on death.

Denial

Eternal is
The lie of life
Denying Death
The chance to say
‘Ah yes, we’ve met! ’
 
Mark R Slaughter
   
 

   
   
 

  199.     

Distraction

The fawn faltered,
Released an eye towards
A crimson dawn,
Bequeathed its blood unto the land:
Out of air
The carnivore –
Sleekness blurred in hooks, blades, bite;
Flesh feeds flesh -
DNA in a just-is world.
 
Mark R Slaughter
   
 

   
   
 

  200.     

Dream

I’d wait for eons and forever
Were my dream of us together
Blessed a single chance of only coming true.

Inside a haze of pointless whims,
A path of tingling senses brims:
Her fingers chart a course of dιjΰ vu.

The notion chases the heart to race.
Delusions of the mind, embrace
The madness!
O hear her purr ‘I yearn for only you.’
