ablaze by Michael McAloran

by Michael McAloran

the jailers keys rattle

my skull ejects

I vomit white sunlight

the black hearse shears

infinite devoid of meaning

flesh unravelling flesh

dense blood back-rolling eye

terrors ejaculations

I can hear the horses at


echoes of necks bound snapping


shadowy devoid

I slip into demise catch an

echo of bone burning snap

into the distance

my existence ablaze ice-white
