Hard Eye Poison -- Poetry 2011



Acid eats through defenses.
Empty eyes churn carnal
offenses to everyday normalcy.
Vacant stare poisons;
frosted by wind chill his
freezer burn touch
numbs inadequate reason…
bites resolve to escape.
Bitter background tremors
shake angst sounds
from her parched lips.
Chapped skin rips a smile;
metallic tang of blood
precludes his taste or scent.
Stench of fear overrides all
in her descent to his hell…
