dust to dream. – Lucy (of Lucy’s Works)

dust / to the dream /
flowers fall to the glass moon
and her fingertips
/ in the
/ ephialtes /
light and / cosmic touch;

you tried to /
ruin me / but I’m not
Atë or Ares.

Spume of the ocean
I will not drown /
you / in my threnody /

war feet / burst like the apple
in the trench / the dissection
of man and bone.

stars / truncated
to the strawberry / pregnant
moon; a death
in a dream and pomegranate
ribs onto stardust and star-death,

a ghost of Adam to Eve,
they are dust

/ the dissection
of man and bone /
seduction / to the / wind
and oak death /

we are the suckle
of the sea, the mouth
of dust,

in elegy.

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
