Skewed Perception

Dangerous specter
riding a deranged dragon
holding its tail
clasped between rotted teeth
stubby cigar
hanging from liver lips
protruding pink tongue
grotesque in appearance.
Spin in circles
curses to blue skies
injustice found at your feet
shotgun in hand
fireworks spew forth.
hiding features
reap rewards
while at ropes end
dangle corpses
twisting slowly
in the wind.
a murder
squalling into the tempest.
wyverns soar
belching streams of fire.
Seated upon the left hand
destruction takes bets.
Seated upon the right hand
malice runs the table.
Amidst all the carnival carnage
the puppet master sits
strings attached to fatted fingers
unaware in his bliss
time is coming
dues will need be paid
a debt uncovered
wrack and ruin
watch basilisk devour
coming back from this…..
a dream sadly lost to the mist.

Author: Jay-lyn Doerksen

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
