In The Labyrinth

In the Labyrinth
A Book of Poetry and art about the oddities and wonder of being alive.

Obscurity rattles me.
One labyrinth tangled inside
another. Skeletons with living flesh
hanging off, defying the certainty of death.
Before I entered this being
I walked on Earth,
on feet of clay. Become
dust particles coalesced
Over centuries orbiting
a star. I would be honorable.
Sober. Give love. More
