When I was a boy of my Fathers eye, Many strands and grey ago, He walked the world with a softer step, A softer step with me in tow. This is how we did wander, And wander we did go. When I was a lad of my Fathers hands, Many yesterdays and seasons come, … Continue reading Softer Seeds
Back to the crushing black deep, Curtain shadow and starless black Oil well swelled swirling black Frost bitten dead toe black, cruelest of cruel cursing soul black Crushing bastard black, rage thrashing sea.

Pre Warning. This may offend.
Somewhere in between half way across swollen stream half awake from happy dream I walk the way in between. Dragging feet solemn stands holding soul heart in hand. Stumbling across uneven pavement uneven land sinking deeper into sand. I’m nearly there some day’s worse return the spell a mind cursed. The drop greater than any … Continue reading Somewhere In Between
