Midway Through This Life's Journey, I Waken In A Darkened Wood, The Right Road Now Lost To Me*

arrives on the backs of giants
headlong swept through
twenty years of suffering
oaths played on howitzers
gunners cheering at each successful report
in this suffering his
famous chair is pitched into the crimson
light while he himself
successor to heaven is
sent to the moon


the houses wear their
Beloved dawn
dying night the dream ladders collapse
along with them our
country of demons
death is credited once again and
once again sent away without collection

*Opening to Dante's Inferno
