Grotesque No. 2





Why else?
That question played,
Always replayed his beginning and end.
Moments defined by raising arms.

His one seducer back.
One moment pressing as another cares.
The tongue of  his stranger’s mind,
One soft  flicker.

Lips that touch his blood directly,
Shoulder leaned down,
Hand in shirt...
The dark wall of closed eyes looks back.

He was rolling it happens.
Will other lips have way as his?
Slender difference if it were so,
Beautiful young flower.

But oldest is fair,
Letting blue of lavender,
Like moons, straight around his face.
A delicate face.

Eyes a pale mirror.
A far look back at expression to be.
Even he does much more than none.
It matters.

A lot of redesigning and relaunching is happening at Raventide Books, as we enter into our fifth year of publishing. It was time for an emblem that encapsulated the bright and dark of what I write, or more specifically, the brightly dark dreamscapes that I visit, via entities of equally mottled emotions and psyches. Of course, the raven had to be included, and now, finally, the unicorn(a symbol of tremendous emotional and spiritual significance for me) has been incorporated.

Look for the new design on all Raventide books, including the forthcoming relaunch of the Blood Wars Trilogy, the ongoing Dryth Chronicles, and all else under the Raventide banner.
