A Final Bow

Curtains close

One final act plays out

To an empty house

No encore

No applause

Alone you stand

A bony fist of rage

Defiant

Alone

A pallid corpse

Begging for loose dirt

To cover your rotting stench

A faceless clown

With no one left

To heed your beck and call

 

Look inward my dear

At the soulless space

A Miasmic void

Survey the fetid wasteland

That we once tilled

Together

About Phil

Hi, my name is Phil. I’ve managed to escape the corporate world, rid myself of excess belongings, travel the country extensively in my old Winnebago, and find a new home on a beautiful barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico. I define myself as: a free spirit, a writer, a philosophical anarchist, a poet; a lover of nature, a lover of art, a protector of animals, as well as a devoted friend and partner
