It Was Blackest NightTo Steve Mitchell's next piece


Why do I seek

your lithe
full body

blue eyes

and sublime, strawberry lips?

For the same
obscure reason

an obsessive
wealthy adventurer

is horribly dismembered
on an uncharted desert island

by ghastly-robed natives
during primitive, dark-night sacrifice

while his glazed, green eyes
remain stoically fixed

on the fire-lit object of his insane quest...

A scintillate diamond
the size of a clenched fist
