MOON ATE THE DARK CHALLENGE: MOON EATS THE DARK – BARBARA LEONHARD
This poem has been republished on hereticsloversmadmen.com. Check out the “seething brains” that “shape fantasies there”.
In a nest of owls,
I awaken bare, bleeding.
Talons pierce flesh.
Stabbing beaks shear old skin,
mincing fat and bone.
I am released into cloud.
Glossy wings unfurl.
I chase stars
and alight onto rays
of petrified time.
I scan marvel
as Moon eats the dark.
I feast on corolla
of sunflowers that sway in breeze
as Owl eats the light.
