Eden ~ Kris Kuksi
Garland your sky with florid visions
Stations of the double-cross
Raise your hem show the incisions
Stitched with the hair of a horse

Spread your arms you junkshop Jesus
Crucified post-pixel priest
Declare your aphorism-cobbled thesis
The glory of a short-term lease

On hemstitched heels misunderstood
Your winged words ascend
Notching grooves on wooden heads
With nails not made to mend

I love it! There is so much harmony in your shorter poems in terms of structure.

I have fell in love with your poetry. So unique in word choice. I love the middle verse - really striking.

Zaina: I must say, I am struggling with structure at the moment :)

Gerry: yummy? now theres an interesting way of looking at it :D

Nicolette: Thank you, hope you will continue to visit

Harelequin: a recovering catholic? Is a catholic who becomes an atheist a 'catholic atheist'? ;]
