Rothko On A Motherless Night
The hollow womb of the universe
Pitch black throw back
The bitumen graveyard starless
Where? Why? Who am I?
The tin can witch holds her whip
flogging, lashing, whisking
the sodium aluminum silicate
until the tone is short and buttery
Jump, stark naked, through the stone circle
Where the wind meets the see the noose ends, free
Will it be me, born again?
