circus- by Michael Mc Aloran

of the burnt bones and yet

the circular eye/



in the drapery of



sing gladioli


I shit

my skull my starry death


into a vault of

the redeem…


steel held


combustion of heart

burnt black


the scar’s breath given to take from absent lung


circus of clear blood

asking of the never/ more…


bound cries fettered by the obscene silence cleft still


till stillness


claimed/ undone


From ‘All Stepped/Undone’, published 2013, Oneiros Books…
