A Poem by Perdition

I see your brown shy outline

sprawled along the drunk muddy floor 

mocking this composer and hobo of midnight serenities 

strange infinite hour 

you raise my head slightly to the clouds

old wooden friend 

to you I grant this darkness

I welcome you back into my empty hands

wiping your ivory bulleted rings

you are the promising tower carrying me through

your blasphemous screams scaling into mine

brandishing triad after triad 

back to the old whiskey valley 

back to the warm waters of old Monterey

and the southern mountains near Hualahuises, Nuevo Leon

I see your brown shy outline like it was yesterday

where we were lovers from the thunder down to the storm

Author's Note

Hualahuises is pronounced Walla-we-sis
