Two poems by Michael McAloran


I fill the butchery of the night

With spill of teeth of cum of death I dream

Where the gallows flow where I am no longer laughter

I exhale into the offal smiles of the dead sky

Collapsed dead flowing nothing emptied silently



One thousand laughters fill the nothingness

Gilded teeth I am admonished of the silence

The drapery of the night shreds the heart to dusts

In the spit of my dreams the grandeur of non-being
