To Not Fear Poem by Justin Tallman


radiated heat
microwaving your skin
boiling the blood

facing head on
the atom bomb
crucifix shrapnel
piercing
leaving splinters
too holy to be tweezed out
suffering for ever


sleeping under judging stars
dreaming in agony
begging for victory
in Russian Roulette
and for one last kiss
from a succubus

To not fear
means being a martyr
for the magic
in your own life
