A loaf of curdled hearts rests upon a dieing man's tooth
His ghastly hat sailing over the flags of old

When he rang the oak bells for freedom
Did anyone really care?
Could anyone really hear?

Should I hide my melon in a cotton filled coffin
Where prying eyes could never drink the juice?
Or should I simply wrap my soul in red silk
And throw it to the bulls?

You decide.

"should I simply wrap my soul in red silk/ And throw it to the bulls?" for all its destructive violence I prefer this fate to the cotton-wrapped coffin-closeted melon... it has daring...

your poems are adventures where anything may happen... and usually does...

thanks for the visual feast of this.
