FAIRY GRAIL



fairy grail




there are horrendous
negative influences
in my life
dwarfs and gnomes
who wish me ill
*
I heard the owl
call my name
the owl said:
“run! the bad 
queen is after you
not to mention
the police!”
*
I didn’t feel 
like running
so instead I went
to the Paradise
bar and grill
and there
dreamed
dreams
*
my sister too
had joined the
evil horde
for a time her
mind was taken
over by darker
forces
*
hate and rage
echo down the
halls reverberate
against walls
*
I put on my science
shoes and step upon
the immaculate
deception
*
see visions of
primordial truths
nobody
knew

*
o   o   o

*
what do I do
with this jewel
I bring back from
the nightstream?
*
the rulers and their
daughters are asleep
or at the
hairdressers
or purchasing
this year’s
auto…
*
the chapel of the
night was dark
the skulls
frightening until
you saw their
infinite carved
beauty
*
Miranda gave her
song to me
and whispered
“sing it!”
*
I passed on
through the woods
and saw
the ruined
castle
*
drank the cup
by the evergreen
and tasted the
meanings
*
took the fisher
from his boat
and served him
breakfast
*
saying:
“here these
are oranges from
the south and 
lemons from the
east here are
mushrooms from the
grove and words
from the
deep”
*
I burned a
knife hot and
cauterized his 
wound
*
shot the dragon
of the night
with an
arrow
*
saw pure
motionless light
in the chapel
*
took his daughter’s
hand and
kissed
it
*
went north to
the new land
and stayed there
with the
children
of the bay.

*
