Gregory Wm. Gunn - One Poem

Ephemeron Song

Like a thundercloud it will burst
and I shall be aware but only
for a split second.

It will penetrate my skin
like a bolt, spring like a puma
from tired old eyes.

It will be both repugnant
as well as aesthetically appealing
like graffiti painted upon
the promised land’s walls.

Like a tenacious horse,
it will become unbridled,
command its own course.

It will flare up and radiate cheer
like a ballad master’s mouth
fanning flames.

And it will keep me on
lidless vigils
like terror-striking thrashes
of the setting sun.

Gregory Wm. Gunn live in London, ON.
