Dan Giancola


An anchorite muses on his dismorphic soul

here in this wilderness I call my home

Left with nothing but the vapid pap of my thoughts

I turn feral to feed upon moon’s bloody tears

A woman with windowless eyes smalts

the sky with her laugh & asphyxiates the stars

Oracular erotic spring shakes my ipseity

another short chapter in the history of peace

Dan   you fool   there’s always more wine
