a penny’s worth of death, a poem MindLoveMisery’s Wordle # 166


Here is my Wordle, using the dozen words provided in the  MindLoveMisery’s  excerise published June 17, 2015.


a penny worth of death

A gun, dark and dreadful,
cold steel caressing the unwilling hand
seductive music of silence and pain…
among bloody ravages of the plague
as dancing creatures
defy the promise of the Tarot foretelling the kiss
that comes forth—
levitating, tentatively echoing
the sparking retort of the pistol’s release
of a penny’s worth of death.
