The Bats Fly Hard

Sliding terror for a hollow day
full of some blue and cold winds
with crazy mice who swim.
There is gray in the world,
told it is dangerous,
not life but people,

poisoning my eyes,
making my brain dance
after midnight
with pink life preservers

But the bats fly hard.
They fly steep,
these bats,
dancing with jiggers of scotch
crystal clear red eyes exploding.

    I love this hard core. The imagery and the mood evoked?
    Love it.

    I enjoy your ability to incorporate colors in such a way as to create strong emotional overtones.

      Thank you for your comment. I am glad the colors have some effect…Most often I can feel them.
