Poetry : A Castle Melts by David L O’Nan

A Castle Melts

We watch the world burn while sitting in the fire. 
The gasoline drips down quick and slick and the predators with the fake yells for peace begin to peel in the air like scorched skin. 

Should have learned to talk to a savior and less absorbing in your diamond mine of flash drives and creepy corner voyeurism. 

Smile at the camera. 
There are lightning bolts built for burning the sheds of the sinner.

  1. What you have here is great, and can be expanded in more length and exposition with your obvious talent. The environment is waiting for your voice.
