Under
The midnight
Moon
Weighed down
By time,
Madness
And the burden
Of life,
Clocks chimed
In cabins
Over sleeping
Bunks
And sleepless
Eyes.

midnight_surge_400Distant
Blinking lights
On darkened shores
And desolate harbours
Marked the night
And the journey
Of the hours over
Silent streets
That strangled
And murdered
Sleep.

Moonlight
Illuminating
Swelling hulls
And glass
And steel cities,
Gargoyles,
Church steeples
Hollow crosses
And rusted
Smokestacks
Of steelworks
Stretched out
Like dragons
Breathing fire
Into the sky,
Casting shadows
Over shuttered shops
And Gyms
And dinghy bars
And closed bordellos
In alleyways
And debauched
Bitumen streets
And broken statues.

Haunted by
Steel and stones,
Steps that drink
The blood
And suck the marrow
From the ignorant
And the damned,
Like zombies
Waiting for the
Morning light.

Flying over
Broken bombs
And bells,
Cracked shells
And rancid
Oil wells
Leaching black
Oil and grease
Through darkened souls
In ancient tombs
Like pits
Flowing with water
Under city streets
And sewers
To the sea.

The madness
Of this age
Weighed
Them down
Like the cross
Of Christ,
Yet without
Salvation,
For they
Destroy
The earth
And abandon
Love damned
By the desolation
Of the night.
