Cloister Bell

Cloister Bell

Long past midnight
shall never I sleep
as a promise
I intend to keep

Through the courtyard
of weeping dew
I am this Cloister
of cold Masons stone

The eternal percussionist
ringer of bell
for those underfoot
and the rest in hell

We will come down from the Heavens and
release your soul from the wrappings of linen

Brighter than Suns our eyes see clean
of the tarnish and blight that exists only to men


We will comfort with feathered embrace
even if all the ceremonies are not performed
even if the name is not carved in Onyx


We will journey to the placid after-life

Oh my husband of far too long
Tis your temper that makes you ill
Quickly forget this tiff of ours
- relax for but a moment
And as a dutiful wife,
I shall fix you some tea

When Luna reigns
dark filled nights
She summons creatures
that live to prey

Of large and beastly-
Legend and truth
El Chupacabra
fang and tooth

Creeping, stalking
those that sleep
earthen ground
the blood shall seep

Wrath of Phobia!


A word for wise
of those who tread
turning up dirt
with every step

trespass and pay
an ancient debt
infesting interest
for our rest

Tied Up

Click on picture to enlarge

I did not want a hanging by the neck
As it may be too gruesome for some to view
I felt comfortable with catching the wrist
I felt better not to gaze on a distorted face
Yet the lead beckoned incompleteness
Too stark - Too barren
I added structure - a manor for the ghost
Surrounded and protected by a skeletal forest
All seemed complete
But now this drawing has life
and speaks to me - begging answer
What does your subconscious really mean?

Mr. Voodoo Bones

Rest in Hoodoo ACEO

Hey! Mr. Voodoo Bones
I see you behind old tombstones
Dancing on the dead
like you don't give a care

Someday soon I'm gonna own this place
I'm gonna make this church
my domestic domain
I'm gonna guard the resting
from the likes of you

When you're in my yard
doin' that Voodoo dance
I'm gonna put my foot to your pants!

Possession ACEO

From the sect:
We've conferred with our experts
The conclusion is - Possession

As mental illness is a weakness
Not of the mind but in your very soul
A hole from which the devil can bore

Call your priest immediately
Mention this to no one

As we will deny it all

Finding out the truth

Finding the Truth

Of late I have this feeling
Something is not right
Caught up in daily worries
The minute details do not exist
Deja vu again and again
I think I know what this is all about
Rationale keeps me from seeking answers
Yet mysterious is gnawing for the truth


Saturday, September 16, 2006



I am living dirt - Swamp-water core
Child of the Earth - I am all things Nature
No bindings on these feet, stained and tough
A horse-like mane, coarse and rough
My love and comfort - Mainstream's fear
A Hoodoo Goddess - My career

Angel of Ghosts

Angel of Ghosts

Every night I call out to thee
"Shake the dust and shed the bones!"
You earth bound spirits that linger
Wake ye poor souls of wretched unrest
Unchain from an existence that is no longer yours

Wavering in the wind on breathless whispers
You no longer belong here - this physical plane
Earthly sins are long since forgotten
A petty tally of chance and circumstance

Again I call "Shake the dust and shed the bones!"
For I am greater than the mortal coil
And your journey has stalled for too long

A little doll we will raise
Dance and sing, we will chant
Our evil wish he will grant

Sinner Stew

Sinner Stew ATC

Our plan is simple, devious and grand
When we come 'round and knock on your door
This world of suffering is the fault of yours
A non-devotious life is the wrath of God
Now we'll tell you the word; truth of truths
To let you simmer in paranoid stew

Invoking the Spirt

Invoking the Spirit

I invoke the spirit of youth and health
Revive the life of this old shell
If only for one quick moment...
I could remember the spell

skull lake

skull lake

Over Skull Lake
Many lives have gone
The years can't remember
There are too many to know

It is a refuge for the soul discontent
A solution of murkiness
To the deeply depressed

A passage if you will,
to the next tier of purgatory

Queen of the Damned

I am the thin wretched being
of brittle bones and leathery wings
To take you into my bone vise grip
You can not deny I am your keeper now
I shall lead your passage into the underbelly of the underworld
a prison of brimstone and relentless fire
As your soul chokes on the ash and sulfur
bow down before me, Sinner -
I am the queen of the Damned

My Crypt

my crypt

In the cold damp crypt
the iron gate groaned,
'it is not your time'

But I am so tired

The marble hard and stern
'you haven't learned enough'

But my head is aching

The dust that clung to the walls whispered,
'your journey is still afoot'

But my body is exhausted

And the ghosts of my ancestors quieted all the tension
'Do not fret, you are next.'

Thee, my living Head

Rise ATC

'And wake me from the dead
That I may rise forevermore to be
With Thee, my living Head.'

(Believe it or not, the clipped words are taken directly out of a hymn book.
Where wilt thou go since night draws near, apparently is a song to be sung at Easter - given the rising dead and all)

Fare happily

fare happily ATC

Wilt grant this unto me, thy spirit.
Lead me ever that I fare happily.

Of Death

Of Death - ACEO

We pray to God for protection
Safety from his creation of life
Fear death out of instinct
Fall asleep believing
And with any luck
everlasting death may be the only peace we find

Running through your mind

Running thru head

Like invading bugs
these thoughts run wild
through your mind
constant squirming
The downward spiral
Black round and round
In a negative cesspool
you let yourself drown
