A Chapter by Dave Brown



A searching wind seeks crevasses

In the hidden reaches of your heart


Seeking scattered pockets of dead lichen

Then tearing them apart


Exposing secrets stored deep inside

Which you spread as night’s sinful art


Laying bare false lies you whispered

That crack and tear us apart


Like dry plaster splitting, falling

Like a sacred symbol ripped and torn


That merciless wind’s endless search

Tearing my heart with its relentless storm


But actually!!


What harm a few innocent cheats and lies

Compared to your scrumptious apple pies


No real damage done, pass the whip cream

Maybe the whole thing was just a bad dream
