Requiem

~ Requiem ~ By ~ Grace ~ ~ I’ve died a hundred times on cold city streets: a thousand times in my dreams, I’ve heard the requiem of death before, the Homeless who perpetually scream. I’ve witnessed sights no woman should see, both degradation and depravity: Murder of innocence, of Love and of Life, of the Homeless existing in everlasting strife, Put to the sword politically ignored by a […]

Psilocybin Street

~ Psilocybin Street ~ By ~ Bwbach ~ ~ Days blaze fades away alone again in the gloom Gently stirring into my brew a bag of mushrooms. Liberties spawn to keep me warm in autumn’s storms When sleet and hail flails her tail, flashes her underwear, When darkness prevails from dawn til dusk, lulls me into […]
