Tag With Midnight

Tag With Midnight

A Poem by Poe Redd

inspired by a day spent lazer tagging, among other things and feelings

it's high pitch darkness you hear
and the graveyard mist that stings your eyes
here is where we lost
here i was target

redundant stories told by the gun.
a croak of madness, a cry of delight
stalking hiding
running crouching now
aiming through the gaping smile in the head of a tombstone
at friends.
New ranking.
Don't kid yourself; it means you've fallen behind.
there he is again-
strobe phantom, gun pointing at your heart again
fingers curl at the satisfied laughs echoing
from the ghosts pressed between the fabrics of time
from midnight to a
                          "deader than thou" disaster.

from out a young man's pocket-
second salvation
it's a race against the night and a past-life
a fire
heavy rubber soles pounding down the ramp
barrels in the air
thick as thoughts
above the walls
you might have matched your hope by climbing
shoulder steps, mis-step and stumble
here I fell
      and never woke

weapons pointed at you grumble
from out the wired walls peer
neon blood and half-light eyes
here the war blew over
here in your hands.
