Message in a Poem

February 22, 2009 at 9:06 am (Dominic Alapat, Poetry)

 

 

Into the body, the mind

finally goes.

Dream, skin, flesh, bones.

And packs and packs of

wild ghosts chasing

a child.

Footfalls, silence, screams.

Love’s darkness, love’s light.

Love’s kingdom, love’s hell.

Time’s shell. Your mind’s dream

and your death.
