THE QUICKENING

HUMANITY concludes its part
an act unequaled in savagery
blood moons paint a crimson
whose portrait hangs without nail
the cross bared once before —
a drop of blood split these rocks
and horror revisits us all this day
a quickening so some flesh be saved

LIVING WITH THE DEAD

I am living with the dead
the past lives who touch
that part of me that lives
such sorrow i compress
and confess my tears
that those who live
have no touch to give
that life may richer grow
