DEATHROPHONE


bang!


a land is hit

by a skinny beat.


splatters of his tongue

fly wildfires of his song;


red droplets of love

on every disciple caught. 


but a raging bullet

of sweetest of death


in every crab soul

with worn brush of head


is a glittering sheep

feeding fast his dreams


as a squealing plead

before a judas knife. 


a judas knife?

the blood of his life?


how come?


let the breeze careen 

the throat of brazen sin


as fires of rebellion,

burning a lost generation. 


let him raze that land

as an obedient task


for the horns who pinned

his sheep a big twink. 


he is a blind fire;

a senseless desire;


he is a trusted death

that dies a trusted death


as hit o'a trusted death

who rakes his sacrificed friend.
