Monster/Paralax' - Poem by Leila Samarrai

I am here…
- I shutter
partition starts -
the pieces,
chaos moving in,
a fury within devils
rupturing with enormity
giving stirring laughter
and wings (numbs they, edged with menthol

"The man you speak of no longer exists."
We are here,
I tremble…
sapless from dark honey,
blood in seltzer,
wine's reverse dream about grapes -
of a web unbound
fog at pale-speed
drifts my eyes to focus
(my teeth wolfen still,
flesh remembered…

"Then what stands before me assuming his manner and form? "

I am here
weak sapless from fanged honey
my teeth wolfen still
flesh between
bound to hard gums
"A monster is rough-hewn by unfortunate events

and given breath by necessity."
