Some nights I seek the violence
miasma of relentless plasma, unfor-
giving our sins.
of glaciers, marrows
of missiles, ash and missions,
bones and battlefields
Please night, un-
make the wild light
of these million stars,
I crave you Morpheus
don’t let me know
This is written for Kenia who guests at toads asking us to write a poem incorporating the title of a song from a post-rock playlist she has given us.
This is a 55 word poem for the weekend using the title “Unmake the wild light” by 65daysofstatic
Oooh, crumbs, that last stanza….
Your plea to night overwhelms ……
Unmake the wild light is one of my favorite songs in that list, Bjorn. Your choice put a smile on my face! Thanks for such a beautiful poem. ❤
Yes, Morpheus is a bit of a tease at times, isn’t he? I don’t mind the million stars coldly glaring for sleep comes easy for me.
Such a wonderful imagery and I love the last stanza.
Wow! This blew me away!! Fantastic!
Wow, I love that last stanza Bjorn.
Wow! I feel the angry stars and not wanting to sit in my list of sins.
I LOVE “unmake the wild light of these million stars.” I was drawn to that title too, but went with looking back. A fine write, Bjorn.
Wow, wow, wow this is amazing, Bjorn!! 😀
