Tag Archives: labour


16 Sep


Earth, stone, blood, bone, bound together forever by history.

Bodies, bent, broken, bloodied by slow, painful, heavy labour.

Offer of sweat, tears and flesh to build solid permanence draped in magnificence.

Pray to painted, petty, impatient and impetuous gods.

Angry deities who do not answer and never forgive.

Lives limp and lost, looking for some magic to lull them into a long final sleep.

Sacrificed souls severed from skins held together for short time.

Cruel glory haunted by ghosts trapped in ancient ambition.

Bitter force hits the heart with intent, unbalancing senses, unsettling nerves.

Earth, stone, blood, bone, ever awe-struck-some-ful.
