Jim Dunlap Author
Nebulous writhings, pure emotion,
blot a madcap ledger, writ
like the last, inchoate notion
of a dark, unhealthy fit.
Extant some bold lammergeier,
serpentwise, yet dragon fell,
destroying life’s pure, flaring fire
across untrammeled leagues of hell.
Colors shooting blinding schism
lighten dark, unfettered dreams.
Sunlight, filtered by a prism,
outlines evanescent schemes.
Thus from behind these prison bars,
the savant yearns to claim the stars.
