Prompt poem: Suffering to birth a new star. Me & My Foreshadow

Suffering to birth a new star

I don’t care if this isn’t real
I’m just so glad you’re here

Now shake with me Loosen
your torment There
is a bird like an ibis
whose flight is motionless
It swims against the vulturish night
Carries suffering away to
fuel the birth
of a new star

See? All is #achieved

Me & My Foreshadow

She wandered years
clawed out of body
walked with her foreshadow
nodded at ghosts in railroad cars

A carny dead and alive
took her skin to show
a #crowd for admission

The spotlight cast
a lunacy of shadows
round the dark perimeter
Hers followed
the world’s laws of light
