The Splintering Sky

 “I am an immortal soul tied to the body of a dying animal.”

— William Butler Yeats

unsafe

 

translucent

 

out of control

 

the mad poet/

 

drifts aimlessly

 

all through his life/

 

quiet violet within the fire

 

wanting evil big above the land:

 

“I am dark on the splintering sky!”/

 

where the light comes from
all his wounds

in front
