Treasure Island

Patrick Frazier


Exorcism


There is a city
In the ghostly spaces of this place
Where times past and present converge

There is a wound
That is a well
And back into it I fell

I see the grave, the green door
He approaches limping
The twisting tree root leg of a wise man
An exorciser of the damned

His hands close over mine
With a crinkle of autumn leaves
I begin drinking down the dusk
Hearing voices

We sit together in a room called ‘Requiem'
Mist rolling underneath oaken doors
From out our chests
Animas converse through plasmic flame
Their faces floating in front of us

His, a fawn's eyes
Ivy hangs as her hair
Slowly coercing out despair
Mine, a rounded face of ice
Of some beauty sacrificed
Sadness rising like a phoenix
Through my throat and into her eyes

Her shimmering hand glides
Above my frosted ribcage
Icy demons shatter on snowy plains

I'm sleeping underneath a shroud
A veil to hide her glowing face
Where the light of redemption rains
Across collective unconsciousness

There is a fissure
In my head
That pours in light
Until I'm dead

Memories flood in flashes.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
