Storm Door

seven? ten? times this happen before

corn crops folded, shadowed and torn

buried on burial dirt and craft

layers of ground that time moved past

safe in day and safe in mind

hot heart beating; dead in line

living past the living gone mad inside

monster bodies widen as they crawl on mine

stay alive and try and try to stay alive

to fight another fight

my fortress is my dying mind

who will come and stay to fight this fight?

we never should have called them legends

we shouldn't have ignored their ghosts
