Crush this Colour
Crush this colour
of filthy grey that summons
all my parts to follow
into a labyrinth where
birds and beasts never go.
Because I am alone in this nadir,
and bitterly red is the hope I hold
to relieve me of this sterile station,
crush my name and when that is done,
my tomb and all its witnesses.
Strike this snare with almighty
Light, let words and flesh fade until
only the nightmare fire remains
to burn and turn me once again
