Tuesday Poem: The Hero - Movement 1: Corpse Road

The Hero

 Movement 1: Corpse Road

This is your song
This is the ruin
Of a ruined land
Hot and fetid as the breath of summer along corpse road

The stink
Death moves on
To where legend breaks through reality
And the tune he sings
Is valiant

A.J. Ponder

Hi peeps, not going to try anything fancy this week, like timing the post - because last week it kind of didn't go as planned.  Nevertheless this poem is yet another failed attempt at a horror poem for an anthology - not because I don't like it but because it decided not to fit the theme.  Never mind - the poem is quite fun (in a macabre way) and even better, it has 2 more movements to look forward to.  Next week's was actually the movement I finished - because it did something remarkable/odd as I wrote it, turning in on itself.  Anyway it will be interesting to know if I like it as much next week as I do this.

Of course I'd love to wish everybody a great week, and hope that whatever you do, you are successful - even if it's just successful at having fun :)  And talking about fun, why not check out some of the really great poems up on the Tuesday Blog?
