Poem - Volcanoes Waiting

The poem “Volcanoes Waiting” was inspired by a photo sequence from the television show Dickinson, episode ‘I Have Never Seen Volcanoes’.


Volcanoes Waiting

Volcanoes waiting to explode
slumbering miles within the earth
invisible to questing eyes
all too ready to believe the lies

those fairy tales of life expressed
of base desires too long repressed
even while the pressure builds
wishing joys to be fulfilled

those delights of raptured breath
hinted as the tremors build
explosions waiting in the realms
sequestered by the hesitant

everything burns in the end
eruptions damning past repents
they matter not when the flesh
takes its due as planets twitch.
