Eyes glistened
On the boulevard
Among the crumpled
Bags and graffiti as the
Neon lights flashed
In the streets and
Alleyways

edge_400Images of
Decaying
Civilisations
Swirled tangled
In wisps of
Smoke like
A snake,
As their eyes
Blinked from
The darkened
Windows of
The city
Skyline.

They danced
In a ring around
The rusted metal
Barrel, the orange
Flames glowing,
Leaping, licking
Casting shadows
Against the brick
Wall lead by the
Shaman in
A trance.

Hypnotic,
Mesmeric,
Narcotic,
Soothing,
Magical.

Their seething
Passions were
Like a cauldron;
Igneous rock and
Steel melting.

They broke
The bread and
Drank the wine
As they shared
A communion
Of poverty,
Shedding their
Inhibitions like
A dried dead
Lizard skin.

Cleansed
And pure,
Shining beacons,
He can still feel
The tingling
Of her touch;
Like drops of
Black and red
Ink spreading
In the water of
A psychedelic
Lamp,

Under
The flashing
Lightning, he
Protected her
Sacred dancing
Space as the rain
Soaked and baptised
Their souls on the
Red rock, on the
Edge in a poetic
Reverie until the
End of time;
Free spirits
Sharing a
Communion
Of poverty
Filled with
The baubles
Of their love.

The years
Fell and died
Gloriously like
Golden crumpled
Leaves, and
Their eyes still
Glistened;
Their whirring
Shadows danced
On lead by the
Shaman.

In a circle
Protecting
Her sacred
Dancing space
Until the edge
Of time.
