journey long

©2022 Michael Raven

dream nomad i
wandering from
shanty to open
field and fews fallen
scratch thorned
under new moon
drawing sanguine
letters scarlet at
sometime
east of west

wrap my scarf
facewound tight
against the dust
with ragbound feet
ribbonfingered
give me leather
give me rust
shield-eyes to
gritstorm dust

i have resumed
keeping faith
a wayward son
of Sovereignty
her one hand
rising burdened
in the mists
a lovers' wraith

we vie for her kiss
by giving sacrifice
hands tossed to
flame
