This is one of my halloween poems, and it’s particularly dark. It’s a sex and murder poem, so you know, it’s perhaps a bit darker than some of my other stuff, but it’s got beauty in it as well, in a fairly horrific way. Especially if you know what the French mean when they describe the Petit Mort…



A skeleton watches from

The closet, as the dust

Filters in,

Covering us

Where we fell.

Knives thrust in each other’s chests,

In a final

Wrath of ecstatic rage.

Agony of


Relief as

We reclined against each other,

Hands entwined in throats

As we fell

Forever, against each

other’s bodies

Gasping our last

As the morning sun

Flittered in,

Covering all in

Thousand year dust.

Shimmers of

Gold and silver.
