Preconceptions

by Danielle Auer
(Nashville,Tenn, USA)

Feeling skin like Demons
touches of preconceptions
do not allow
freedom from pain or constraint
there is none

meters of needles
sugar converted truths
not necessary
nothing gained
no nourishment

the dancer upon the pole
speaks the eyes
truth's accusations
visual accounts
Hell follows

the game is finished
Sunday school
amateurs of right
following salvation's
not eardrums

seeing words
of tea and sympathies
drown out radio speakers
ice with cold warmth
Demons attack

leaving fossilized bones
rewards of non truth
Paleoanthropology excavated remains
left in love
proving Death the absolute freedom
