The Ogdoad Pay a Visit to Ernest Angley

we are the fire
we are the breath
of a thing
beyond the thing
that burns within
our fragile skins

we are the sound
we are the voice
of piercing words
of prophecy
that mistakes this
for a world amiss

we are the hole
we are the way
a beacon in the dark
the purifying heat
a fury, a power
a nihilistic coward

we are the breath
those that live
in and out
in and out
the never-fading fire
the unquenched desire

we are the things
we’ve been so concerned with
per serving
perversing
we are the breath
we are the fire

    1. Ha! Neither! There is supposed to be a space: “per serving perversing” and the latter isn’t even a real world which probably conflates the issue even more! Thanks for comment, Sunra. Always appreciate yer eyes.
