God Dead Dog

god dead dog
aims lips of ooze
fruit of strength
tongue of passion,

dog dead god
of god dead dog.

fog head
stone of deed
wild not wild
broadsmile glistens.
eyes yellow
glaze on mother -
ripple of spark
drives through my
bandaged leather
fire in eye,

dog dead god
of god dead dog.

blown misery
streak of shine
valve & delve
dwell & hell
manic swill
habit of tongue
great heart,
speck of glisten
ease of proof
of sweet sheet move.
wild acceptance
man of man
river of silver
crescent rise,

dog dead god
of god dead dog.

zing dale bye,
crazed laugh
slipped on essence
given to walking
faith live bound.
massive appeal
minds gone flipped
moved throng shamble,

alive dead dog
hitting shelf
of soul,
brother mole.
monstered image
busted bad
by same dog god

dog dead god
of god dead dog.

(Glebe Sydney 1992)

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
