Afternoon Poem

a lion at the door
Swallowed the day
Broken with spite
At the inevitable chorus of pop songs
Sutured for soft light

I burdened siesta
With a thousand little earthquakes
I listened where you suffered vertigo

Flowers have faded
Bellies betray
Caught the wistful eye
That curved beneath my eyelids

Something slime
And panic strewn
We gather the remnants of democracy

Silence herds mad laughter
Cumulus scorn
Haunted horizons running
Running to weep
