Sometimes
I depersonalise
and cannot believe
I am still alive,
blood-pumping
as pendants unhinge
like exhumed coffins;
skull-moons littering
my path.

These arcane excursions
have me reading
epitaph-poetry,
cryptic flower-script:
of all the forgotten names –
set in the finery
of seed-husks.

And
I dip
Saturn-spit,
sitting back,
closing off
like the iron-lace  
of tomb-balconies,

cupboards
open and close
inside of me –

and I am back where
I belong.
in moments i slip away...and come back

I love this. It sort of reminds me of E.E. Cummings, only it makes more sense =P

That sets fire to my brain kindling. Thanks for that Ms. Gravestone Tripper.
