2 poems by David L O’Nan: Quincy Bled All Over South Carolina & Kisses With Poisons

Quincy Bled All Over South Carolina

He took a blood oath to her
In the white sands
In South Carolina
Escaping through the patches
And all of the thistles and thorns
All those trees fight the sunshine into dusting
And it was a second degree robbery
We had to burn the place down
Take our street hunger to the ocean
But will I lose her,
and never see the infant face I had just been blessed to see?
With moments of holding my new daughter
I knew I had to find my old banger's gun
There isn't enough money to support this family
And damn it! If i'm gonna let them feel my diseases,
and mimic all of my weaknesses
Like most cowards they will all just forget my name.
Their nest egg will be hidden in the shivers -
of broken palm trees 6 feet down.
And the stains of my strength will lay heroic in these old man-
sands in a murdered Myrtle beachfront.

Kisses with Poisons
It was the scent of ethereal candles 
Surrounded by the pianos become prisons 
the whole house is filled with kisses of poisons.
I couldn't feel the touches to my skin.
I was entranced liked a blind man's fabrication of art.
In a junkyard of rusted trumpets
Where black widow spiders build new cemeteries.
Moonlight is the impetus.
Pulling me into these kisses of poisons,
while the chardonnay glistens with mercurial tears.
One sip and I join these dancing bones.
And become the highest bid at this purgatory auction.
