The WallPaper Poem
Floorboards carved with poems and littered with moth carcasses
rot under pink light tendrils spilling from the dust spattered windows.
I crouch in the corner and gouge my findings regarding the wondrous color into off-white wallpaper.
Looming pine silhouettes
(Though I suppose that's the perspective on life that got me into this situation... Not enough of us listen to Galileo while he shrieks about the stars swimming.)
Cherry-blossom twilight mist -
hand of the sky grips my skeletal wrist and
records the history of a pebble
with gnarled fingernails.
So, here's 'The Wallpaper Poem':
If I'm to believe the tales,
the entire mechanism ends with me anyways.
