Dreams turn to sunlight.
Illuminating children
Laughing like cherubs
Touching everything with their sticky hands.
Angels catch a sickness
Fall from smog clouds
They land in holes
That we dig in the dirt.
We turn human to die.
Eaten to the bone by parasites
That are being eaten by mouth cancer.
Forget and are forgotten
Fingerprints on the photograph.
Earth is slowly filling with human remains.
We are careful in the dark.
Our breath is smoke
Freezing in the air.
The moon has jaundice and the stars,
They are like strangers,
So cold and faraway.
We would meet beneath the skeletal trees
Licking and cracking lips.
Our hair wet with frost.
Nothing human remains.

some highly effective lines here, the last being the icing on the cake. it's sick, it's sad, but it's strangley intriguing, strangely alluring... just what I've come to expect from your poetry. great stuff.

It's me, Angella
There you go again. Seducing with the grotesque. I love it. I think it ranks as one of your best. I like the ambiguity, playing with words like dough.
