A Tribute to Metal.

A Tribute to Metal.

A Poem by Casti
"

The world resonates its birth And tolls of its destruction; All we can do is dance.

"
Metal
Slamming skulls-
Head-banging,
Windmilling
Back! 
Forth! 
Spiraling, spinning, twisting, tearing 

Grinding cervical disks to the bone

I AM ALIVE!

On fire,
flame
My birth,
A pyre of old
Smallminded fears
Oxidizing.
I’m metal.
Heavy.

My heartstrings screech and howl in distortion

Crunching my mind and freeing my soul-

Heavy...
Molten lead flows warm through my veins and

My taut body ripples in exultation, sweat glitters a mystic aura
And neurons arcing with sparking brilliance, the lightning in these thunderheads,

thunderhooves-
The machinegun thudding of one hand clapping,
Two sneakers slamming,
Ten trillion thrashing free!

Sound shattering silence,
With darkness, lighting
With immolation, carbon.
Life and death fellating each-other's tails

SO ALIVE!
Squealing!
A phoenix soaring, screeching 

above shattered marble of this damned world,

I’m borne on wings of sacred fire!


Surrounded by death-
Black-robed angels of wild and reckless beauty

Screaming, thrashing mad, flying!

Through music I am saved;
(And yet they call this blasphemy!?)

The world resonates its birth
And tolls of its destruction;
All we can do is dance.
