For every little candle


 

From Bosnia without love

With love arrived

The Cretan Bull

Like a witch of wishes

Those skyish strati

Astartan

As an avalanche on

The back of a Judas boulder

A running mountain of

Revealing ripples

Revealed elbow dances

And sweet tongues

Poor Jago!
You were not God’s favourite!

But you turned

Feverishly

Fearlessly

On the

Favourite

The unfortunate victim of

Wrath

 

Oh, Ishtar!

Your goodness for my

Blameless eyes

Was too much

And whoa! From here?

All the way to

Marathon

With charismatic nostrils aflame

Dust flying

In my face

To blind and mute

 

 

For every little candle

To all big stars

You all witness

My demonic inscription

My mind and heart and soul

In all forms, intelligible

In all grammar and prose

And languages

My writings of dark

For the light

To get within

That I am still here

As alive as ever

As eager as ever

As big as ever

As unapologetic as ever

A voice forbids arrest

I have to go on

Through the moonlight

And on till the starlight

Is sunlight

To pressure on

Release the tyrannosaurus

In me

And the brethren

One by one

I am alive

Rejuvenated

Reoriented

In the last grip of humanity

To blow the iron curtain

For deceit

For the light

To see the dark

Like I had been

Before terminal

Delivered off my lines

Hercules blows away the bonds

The bonds intended

For hell

But sent for newness

Is it impossible?

Ever dynamic their pants

Aflamed with cold

Killing instinct

A sword of foreign death

Skulls crushed

Necks sliced

Fingers roasted

And complete

Swallowed with glee

On negotiation

Their instituted intentions

We are not humans

For them

We relinquish waste

Ours

And bathe  in theirs

We nauseate

Our aptitude develops

With Plato’s guiding

Cutting our innocence

We shudder

And become desert sand

Yet there is no red light

Plato guides us on

Recreating us

But we are humans

We do it humanely

And not as

A cult.

 

From the broken lands

Of tormented life

And children in blood

They came to give

Some rest and some food

To empty bowls

They had their full

They had their fill

With holes in the plates

Of benignity

 

seven barmy blasphemers


1
I was putting powder on my cheeks for three nights
I was putting powder on my cheeks for three nights
as subsided temperamental Countess
of rosy cheeks without a dental crown

Are you not too slow and pious to
persecute me, and nail me to the cross
in the eyes of the thief
two canine teeth are ruptured by nails and his funereal tell
(for I and the Almighty bovine get along like Jesus and his cross)
caught a sense of all the Gospels

2
I am mild towards my alienígenas albertosaurus murderer
masquerading as a human being zipped inside a skin suit.
and the secret alignment that chords over us
while bombs and people were falling around us

3
While bombs and people were falling around us
I’m jeering from one end of the full stop to the other.
Goddess, God or Lord puts on a pair of black gloves, t
hough she – the black spaz is not the son of a glove maker.

She rose from the grave
With a knockdown gaze:
“I baptize you with water to this grave”
She sits on a mahogany bench then,
which is intended for the visitors of the dead
the music is rocking inluxurious splendor

4
Just tragicomic love noise in the background
played by the orchestra in lacy nightgowns
one sad melody
She licks the remnants of her coquetting life
and her beak is facing the sky

5
I lined the idea that failed to flow forth
I lined the idea that failed to flow forth
as I hovered over the Shrapnel soap
while the 1999 Shrapnels were whistling around us
and I adjusted my face in the mirror
as waiting in the wings for my tears to come

6
I sang a lullaby for a happy heart-shaped face
I celebrated a feast that doesn’t come to mind
is silent without a pause, she – God – is black
and she listens without a pause,
with virtuoso aversion

I celebrated the feast through
Blessed Sacrament of anguish
At most, it’s vivisection.
in several pictures

7

I shuddered gracefully swamped in the turbid acid
the promotion faces were looking for love in my view
where there is no one else but blueness and croquet
oh, fine abstraction, you’re warm as saline

God abandoned Jesus on the cross.
their sadomasochistic relationship is predicted.
At most, it’s vivisection.
in several pictures

In The Balovale’s tribes mausoleum (of human history od living and dying)


 

Airily at a fragrance-oozing garden                                         a gem-beautified tree leaving a peg of bright white wood

 

Thrilled hand sculpting faces to add to                           by the garden

 

With midsummer rose petals of                                         Venusian Red by the sides floor-strewn in rows

 

 

Too holy to pray                                                                      my eyes looked at the firmament’s high girdle

 

to dive in seclusion into light

 

 

It’ll just be one great summer of red tea

 

and I shall disrobe myself before nature                          and taste of love

 

hear the cortege the flutes and the                                    tambourines

perceived in the wind

 

Entombed beneath the mountains of Himalayas seclusion

 

In The Balovale’s tribes mausoleum

 

where it always smells like greasy secretion

 

during circumcision, an ancient torture for babies

 

 

From ancient precursor to what we call warfare

 

Since Ilyad then Tiberius’ Holocene and the charge of the light brigade

 

were terrifying, inglorious flash which had souls charred to ashes,

 

the blood kept coming from knife-stabbed bodies

 

Blades cut palms from the palm-trees for

 

a chant for selfish prayer of the wildest Brutuses

 

Richards, with all the Henries in between

 

leader, a sociopath in the house of roses

 

to clothe himself in war to taste of blood by fire

 

 

Gold glorified in greed have baited the kings

 

to close their eyes

 

and descend into apathy’s underworld

 

This has to be the end

of attending to gloom

 

Attention, my soul, do not leave your gaiety’s sun unattended.

 

 

I am not some face boiling if you stretch out

like a kid, your tongue at me

 

Here is my skin thick to stand

jackals from your lips                                                                                                                                                                                          handsome replica

 

appliance  is for the sake of ameliorative mankind

 

living with love in my blood is enlivening,

 

living tenderly in the silence..

 

No decay will devour my summers’ bloom

 

Actually, the sun in its beams of glory

will resurrect midsummer dreams

 

 

I want to see you, you… morning house

You, dewy face

You, flowery eye

 

In fact, when I take off this night gown

like a daughter in obedience

 

 

A garden secure,

pleases me with the fragrance, that faylike spell

 

 

myself, I’m a mystic

who seeks the Heavenly

 

I should walk alone with a silent head

to a secluded wood

and dive into darkness

to rise up into light

Monster/Parallax’ – Poem by Leila Samarrai


https://www.poemhunter.com/poem/monster-paralax/
I am here…
– I shutter
partition starts –
the pieces,
chaos moving in,
a fury within devils
rupturing with enormity
giving stirring laughter
and wings (numb they, edged with menthol

“The man you speak of no longer exists.”
We are here,
I tremble…
sapless from dark honey,
blood in seltzer,
wine’s reverse dream about grapes –
of a web unbound
fog at pale-speed
drifts my eyes to focus
(my teeth Wolfen still,
flesh remembered…

“Then what stands before me assuming his manner and form? ”

I am here
weak sapless from fanged honey
my teeth Wolfen still
flesh between
bound to hard gums
“A monster is rough-hewn by unfortunate events

and given breath by necessity.”
Leila Samarrai
