On life and its vagaries

Spotted Lights

Spotted Lights

In the spotted light of gas lamps

I see a motley crowd

All drunk, all blabbing, all in haze of smoke

That pervades their innards

And I see people shrieking-

Flogging themselves mercilessly with canes

I see specially lighted fires

And live cockerels soon to be drained-

Like bottles of hot red wine

And I see him, the elder of them all

Shrieking like crazy

“Bring it to me” He cries himself hoarse

“Bring me my weapon”

Feeling strangely bemused I leave the place and

Walk  away into a night full of stars

 

( This again is an old post. Its a bit dark, but is based on something ritualistic I saw once)

  1. I love the imagery in your work. It’s like you’re painting a moving work of art.
