weirdoomed

prickle the thorny skin

a sum in shattered soul parts

for the shriekers on the horizon


grim hysterical penance

inner pleated fold in time

foul and turning at the edges


it is here where I learned

to see round corners

between squinted long lashes


peered into the deep

took flight and gripped tight

to the spell sweeping handle
