The Barren Vine

Barren child, ripened vines

Patchwork a solaced frame


Betwixt, the shaded hollows of

Piercing tine and annealed vein


Broken bairn, stare not deep,

Unto trespassed eyes lacking name


Lest withered rinds braid forth the tokens to

Beckon close the guileful lilt procuring Charon’s flame




Whence unabridged shepherd’s falter liege,

Soundly, fore after, a dawdling wind conspires,

Dredging forth a caustic river’s dry,

Uncovering each misnomers turbidity of desire


Imprudent trails falsely shying flocks upon,

The seeded straits of vagary’s dream,

Inflicting thy aspersion’s a latticework of cursed folds

Contrasting derma’s blaze with viscera’s frosted seams



Of excess, comes a certainty

A surfeit exposed, where engorged

The hunger grows, settling for naught,

Nonesuch less the equally exposed

Quaintly more, than that, of the satiety of human kind,

Often found alone, in the cauldron’s chambers

Where gluttony proudly boasts


In seek of remedy; we delve deep,

Clasping insanity’s target arranged,

Bathing in the afterbirths of teardrops,

The masked blatancies in malady,

Hence, eyes alter lens and hue,

Slowly merging away, altering the being

That once thrived beneath a skin so cruel
