Godsent Trojan Rocking-Horse

A Poem by imagination-1234

Glitter, nervous laughter.

You ring. Your bones

                            empty and

 

in Emptiness:

basket staff net hammer spanner

I cackle like a madwoman

                     when I'm happy.

 

They ring and they rock us.

You ring and rock with them.

In darkness

 

You cannot come

because you never came from anywhere else

 

In utter darkness

Rocking back and forth

                         in utter darkness

someplace.
