Crosses In the Sky

Is eyes
Crosses in
The sky
Only the
True bones
Of eternity remained

Dream Peril

In your clutches –
All alone again

Mirror Thirst

Is angel
My mirror
Down the stairs
In layers
Of the invisible

Is angel
No tongue
Into rave
As thirst

Sight Lines

Along my cuff
Of dreams
The light
To waking

Woman Veil

Each charred page
Of wind
Another poem
Covered in
The bruised veils
Of your eyes

by John Aiello
March 2019
