Camena Vita Explorationis

Poetry written at the dark hours of night and through the cold winds of winter, and poetry written in the glorious sunlight and through summer's warm array. The title of this book, "Camena Vita Explorationis" translates into "Poetry of the Searching" from Latin. "Battle" and "Dear Mr. Gove" are both published poems.


8. Hangman

Oh my little Hangman,

oh, how I mourn for 

your soul.

Charred and blackened,

oh, how the wrong vowels,

how they pierce and bleed,

black ink,

ever so quickly

forming the guillotine . . . 

Little man, why?

Why do you want to

commit suicide?

The words, they pound,

and yes, the phonics punch, 

but little Hangman,

you have your artist.

Allow the ink 

to dry, at least.
