As Well - Poem by Jason PraTT

Presences come, wherefore, haunted by the footsteps
With shadows, by dark corners, incessant detours
Brighter than brighest flickers of pubs and alley lights
And stately odeum performances by harnessed vagabonds
Waning in stance by drunken recitations and drug-filled ideals
Under trickling bridges of cold; the harlot’s after spot
Outstretched in benefits as whore with obligations
Blessing the johns and boring the janes of vast domains
Here in the bayou of the gutter, where the red lights are on
Twenty four hours of the night, where pastors prey for sins
God’s steps are skipped, still He watches each maneuver made
Like flames dancing around a pregnant altar in a series of oval dreams
As well, following Jezebel down another downward, spiral of splendor
Sins, now in my shoes, still I walk on coals and skip over the waterfalls
