“Parasite of the Sun” – Haiku V

[Originally published as the second half of Cosmic Love.]

41—
Tri-coloured wasteland
Cursed by chromatic god’s eye
Illuminated

42—
Mellow death seekers
Premonitions smooth as sound
Gambling for soul shards

43—
Reanimator
Wandering demon in his
Circuitboard thumbprints

44—
Fractured delusions
Facets of you I recall
Fragmented visions

45—
The absurd biome
Trees with piano key teeth
Slaughter dusk faeries

46—
Robot born of tusks
Ivory – his teal balloon
Drifts in foothill winds

47—
Chambers and columns
Alchemical genesis
Of my solitude

48—
Bleed sap of dead men
Flesh-melting ink beetles swarm
From the gored maple

49—
Neon wedding dress
For a bride with metal bones
And transparent skin

50—
Para-natural
Sly hunter or violent waltz
With self-persona
