Free Verse--Death Personified

"Death Waiting by the Door

You, the kind one,
my now-absentee landlord,
I know you hide, waiting by the door
for me to turn in the key, so you can
grant me wings to soar and witness, from atop,
the way you'll bare my skin and unseal
my guilt, pleasures, or the cavernous dark,
the job I could never do on my own.
Then, after emptying me of those material things,
you'll direct me to a beauty that
makes poets weep, and
you'll bend into my coffin
to let my bones stay
as your keepsakes.

Unrhymed Pantoum--Seduction

"Night's Lure

Night entices me,
liberal and wild-eyed,
mentioning unseen treasures,
it opens the dark veil ajar.

Liberal and wild-eyed,
night parts its moist lips,
it opens the dark veil ajar
to tickle my senses.

Night parts its moist lips
like a barefooted lover
to tickle my senses,
offering a jug of wine.

Like a barefooted lover,
night bends over me with passion,
offering a jug of wine
to look deep into my life.

Night bends over me with passion,
mentioning unseen treasures,
to look deep into my life.
Night entices me.
