At Midnight Demanding Entry

Its words. Flowing how some people
free their giant dragon kites
into the sky's blue everything.
Trees softening in sky's flame of wind.
Yet, all day in Singapore, there can be another way.
Some remain forgotten, and others should know better.

Yet through shuttered windows, a barred pale yellow heart is burning,
a varied candle amongst others at midnight's doorstep.
Oblivious to a thousand irrelevant things,
it dreams of sports, freedoms, dwarfs and fairies.

On the tenth floor of years overheard,
a bloody drink of pictures, and tableau of word.
It has an architecture,forged from freedom's anvil,
small and soft, unlike material towers,
whilst beating on midnight's door
with inevitability's scalpel.

A poem by the cloned corpse of Marcus Tal

inspired by the
superb poetry of Gilbert Koh

An interesting poem, and born of another I already enjoyed. That adds an odd cohesive flow to today's surfing.
Nice work.
