LP No. 11_2021_twixt magic and dreams

as Apollo’s final wink
inflames the sky in audacious hues;

The Baron emerges,
sifted from Twilight’s dusky spell:

Which is our
time to flee

the coming night,
with all its unseen.

But,
unbidden,
unencumbered,
and
unapologetic:

She Rises Radiant.

to
light shadow with dulcet whisper;
seduce Samedi; and
claim Queenship of these crossroads.

dream safely tonight my friend,
for you are protected, and
you are loved.

LP No. 01_2021_ Hidden

Shrouded


in the brilliant
preponderance
of the coming storm,



and
ensconced
in swirling mists
of ether,
magics,
and assorted devilry,

Destiny calls out,
desperately


yearning for your touch.





Do you
hear her?





Do you want to?




or would you rather slip
back
into sweet angelic
dreams of beauty
and love?






hidden away in vaults of eternal treasure,
She waits for your embrace.





Will you answer?
or simply wither away?

lost

Rumor
told me of your return.
I did not want to believe.

you knew that Fate had closed that door.
She has always been faithful
to me.

walking briskly through that cold night
you saw ghosts
and prayed for demons,
but only
felt your
emptiness.

my welcoming hearth,
closed
to you….

so you supped
alone.

this magic
this wonder
this touch of ethereal delight….
this
is the promise
lost to the cold of night.

but from the shadows
a roar comforts
these bones.
I am home,
wild and alone.
