Blood Ballet is a hesitant entry in my haiku collections. It is a ballet – but a silent one with a single, disjointed dancer who moves like a mannequin.
I love it no less than anything else I’ve written, but by nature it is… parasitic and strange, for lack of a better description. This mini-eBook, an improvement style-wise on the one before it**, will be available likely around mid-March for anyone to read or download. I dream of one day publishing these in paperback form as a big omnibus, but that may take time.
Shatter to marrow
Mania, a blood ballet
Shudder in the bones
The occult chill stabs
Through networks of thin nerve strands
Silence wakes the ghoul
Black cord, deep navel
Stark white room, a blood fetor
The stench of the loop
Organs churn a life
In secret beneath the grass
Softly, a heart beats
