  Go to the Blog THERE ARE CORPSES

by David McLean
Go to the Blog  

there are corpses lined up like several devils

their February Armageddon, and harmless flesh

to cover them, wrapped up in sex and the self

waiting for us forever, for they are abstemious

dreamers, a thin film of nothing

to cover anxious night:


they are a lack and an absence

like everything that thinks alive
