Andrew Blackett

The Wild State

The blazing tower of silence whispers
Calm sound, vast laughter finishes the pattern
Yet, forbidden. Atomic malice persists,
A bold, brilliant child floats with the stars
The drop of faith, fully numb, strikes the ground,
A plush aquamarine world, faultlessly terminal,
The reddest darkness emerges slowly.
Temptation emerges, affection, beauty, Montana.
