Guest post from Paul, for Anne-Marie’s friends and followers




tearing into the fear
ripping doors from their hinges
of madness
to shine my hot eyes
on cold creatures within

I am rescuer come
to save sanity’s author
bring him back to his talents
normalcy once again
breathing self-confident ether

standing with attitude
planted on mind-stones
cemented with bone-ash and opium
I ring down thunder
and call out these monsters

despair mongers
cower in two-cornered rooms
pissant puny flat figments
whose bitter-taste whispers
will suffocate brains

they dissolve at my touch
into puffs of red smoke
as I wrote it should be
with my critical pencil
my duty fulfilled
