Flak Rackham Poems
Icarus Is Alive In Freefall
Never born with wings to fly Picked by fate we fall Acolytes of destiny's Icarine conviction
The shadow sword of night descends upon the field of day. The windswept crystal halls of light like shattered prisms lay. To pulse awhile with bleeding fire as the evening seeps away. The fiery buckler of the sun makes way before the ranks of gloom.
See Them Dancing
See them dancing Pressed upon trembling smiles hung on lips
The Garden Adversus
Fools assign a minor role to the vegetable soul. A lesser portion in life's scheme, cabbage heads who never dream
Do what I want to say you love me To hell with heartaches Say I love it
Lurk beneath the burning gloom. Stalk the stricken day. Scent the nightshade's flaring bloom. Breathe the vapors gold and gray.
Trophies from the games we play excite our elder hours.
Photos of forgotten beaus book crushed summer flowers.
Place this in your textbook and on some winter's day.
Exhume it for a moment. Then put my poem away.
