POETRY

Thursday, September 25

Burning Silk

dessicated leathern sobbing sighed
from beneath flaring sands
from those entombed
in stone and gold;
shifting cobwebs rippled,
fine dust haze
settled after a storm,
choked a citadel
silenced by its violence;
heat-blasted
burning Sphinx
twisting hieroglyphs
incense;
sun,
scoring and white-hot,
penetrated the perfume,
ran over silk
like molten lava,
found
perfect oiled skin
stretched over
those mummified hides,
empty chests
shuddered as cry after anguished cry
heaved -
an asp curled
around her fingers
and
struck and struck
at her breast.
