His Mansion

His Mansion

A Poem by Alexa Tasch

The faucet oozed tears, red like blood

Swamping the grease stained sink

Washing white porcelain and marbled tiles

Blood dripped and plates shattered

All across the bathroom floor

In the corridor swung a man

Pale in face and cold in flesh

Silk clothes are interchanged with burlap

Broken windows glistened with sunlight and red

A chandelier swayed in the changing breeze

Beneath it sat another man

His hands rough with work and poverty

His soul rough with anger

Upon his chest he bore a suit of silk and gold

And there he sat above it all

Spilled champagne and blood alike

Atop a pile of bums and beggars

Friends who he killed to reach the top
