Universal Dust

Universal Dust

Angel wings shed their shattered plumage
Rusted halos splinter in the traumatized sunlight
Twisted crosses tangled about the neck
Holy bread converted to vulgar mold
Red wine pours as stench-filled vinegar
Colours hued to black and white

Friends greet each other as bitter enemy
The senses disfigured by brutish alchemy
Smiles hide the perfume of hate
Softened flesh hardened as the iron-gate
Walk alone, if you must
Know full well your last steps will merge with universal dust

Thank you,
Joseph Pede
