Michael Mc Aloran - Four Poems


breaking shadow

the corrupt sky bleeding

dust upon flesh

night's cancerous steel

as silence

a pathway of skinned flesh

of wasted tears

to water the dead earth of

the dead

dissolved light

a rape of seedless sound

maggot of existential


flexed corpse of the sun

in my dreaming

I die

I die vacant

I die



a burst wound

of shimmering sky

the transparent wind

desolate the hunger

feverish gilded silence of the flesh


heart of bile

heart black as the night's sky

venom tooth

cracked porcelain smiles

eating away the fingers to the core

the marrow

spilling across the silent breast


shattered glass

broken cum locked ice held

the veined film of the sky

a quivering hand

an open wound

silence of eternal stone

the flesh grinds upon final flesh

earthen dense with blood

the disfigured light pulsing in a bare

white womb of roomscape

existence stripped bare its burning nothingness

words denuded of life as a silent corpse


striated murmurs of

streaked opulent intricacy

a pageantry of flesh a scattering of fresh orchids

the deft hand caresses the un-birthed flesh

in a fruition of razorblades

spitting out the hollow skin

a broken sky-locket of final tears in dirt




traced by

the wind


I retch

a glimmer

of avaricious


searing the

atrocity of

the sky

sickened unto

headless bellowing

I tear my skin

to shreds

with laughter

the bruised fruit

of my eyes

I devour
