1. "Rimbaud"


House Of The Dead

An antique clown wears the crown in the House of the Dead
Circus cronies circle the drain in cars tiny and far away
Concerned crowds cluster around screens hypnotic blue and cold
Words are tattooed into thought with icicle pens
A great poet once wrote,
1."Science and Patience, Retribution is sure."
Now is the time of thunderous silence and poisoned light
Ghost rooms full of screaming staircases that lead to nothing
Uncounted hosts welcoming guests to the House of the Dead
Where inverted pyramids suck the lifeblood from lifeforms lost
Figures vaguely whirling in states of vacuum trance
Find a faceless mirror in this place of endless error
Something dark appears unknown reasons remain unsaid
An antique clown wears the crown in the House of the Dead
