bellies burning
insides churning
weeping crawling



rumble tumble
stumble fumble
snip rip and roaring



bubbling boiling
deafening thunder
downward and under



into the festering
belly of the
where hopelessness
eats and gnaws
upon your

while the devil
dances the jig

(Vampire Psalm 39 from “The Book of Cain”)

nature weeps, the devil sings
at man’s greed and pride
and what it brings

just lots of useless
little things…

"He was the brightest of all the stars
of heaven, and even ripped and torn
in half, he still shone with a fire of a
billion suns. With a mighty roar
and a Big Bang, he imploded and
exploded out of the nothingness; and
the flow of Time began.”

words escape me but, 'gnashing' comes to mind.

Great form. In full-gambol!

the voice of the dead
Thank you all for reading -these are gnashing and bashing human beasties-drunk with the taste of blood and yet hating their fate and Mistress (the devil)

most of the stuff I write (poetry, prose, essays) all revolves around or is related to my creation myth "The Tangled Tapestry" The main voice of that piece is Lucifer Morningstar and in human form and also the main voice of the Appendix's is Santo Nicola-So I write in the voice of Santo Nicola for most of my dark or shaded pieces.


Santo Nicola ;)

re: Dancing Dead
This is very chilling....I do so wish I could get past that white ooze dripping from between my fingers in my squishing of that red cock roach as the ooze thickly drips to the floor...

Any chance of your telling how you came about that name? ...It just takes me moments to overlook and try to read the content...

No offense meant....just wondering....

There are many reasons I chose that name but one of the reasons you just gave-the name creeps you out- you feel like squishing it - The cockroach is a maligned bug,it's been here for millions of years unchanged, hungry and undefeated.

When I was here last I had a avatar that was quite dark- it creeped some people out- The name achieves the same goal.

Also the Red Cockroach was in a poem of mine that much of my end-cycle writings derive from-you can find the poem in my bio-

We're all a bunch of cockroaches, eating, killing and defecating- That is just a few of the reasons
why I chose the name-
