rapturous ruin reborn

A Poem by Freder Fredersen (aka Grady)

word tapestry...weaving...web....wicked....wierd...wobbled...wanton... wham! wack! whisper . . . whisper . . . headshot!


rapturous ruin reborn


obsequious meat waves dulcet circles,

savory moisture beckons base rhythm,

tender moment anticipates the savage sword,

taunts the mutagen instinct,

dangles just above acrid flame-tongues


touches raw fleshy vulnerability,

pierces home’s sweet grasp,

warm makeshift mouth works ravenous

strangled pumps of desperation


desire tenses, beast rises, lust parts,

accepts, welcomes

naked steel motion,

critical conditioning pays its master:

sensation shudders, air gasps, time twitches, pleasure climaxes to red skies

and laps crimson wetness from a battered cloudy sheath


hard gleaming polished nerves lie down panting;

tyrant rises for a kill-thrust,

breath changes, quickens, halts . . .

begs . . .

resumes in feverish elation


demise averted, life affirmed, legs tremble sweaty salvation-

fed blade weeps a smashed satisfaction,

exhausted metal

glows orange, flashes white and fades to night


feathery collapse immediately yearns for resurrection-

thick scraps curse the slaughterhouse floor;

drum pulse pounds a marched procession to the next

Easter release

Boy, am I tongue twisted LOL! Ok, what I got from
this is you are describing the killing, cooking, the cutting
of eating. Maybe, it was a Easter dinner theme as well.
You're a very creative person who uses a lot of different
wordplay and visuals for us as the reader to get the picture.
