Three Poems by Persephone Leonard


by Persephone Leonard

Eyes











I’ve looked into the eyes of evil,


Dilated, black pupils,

Erasing earth brown,


As he shoved the pill,

Into my mouth,

And held me down,


His face faded ‘round the edges of my memories,


But clearly, I see spittle fly,


Disdain soaking twilight skies,


My innocence a sacrifice


 

Echo












Huge Cumulus Clouds on the Horizon, Look more like snow-capped mountaintops

today,

The way they stretch, to meet the green Plains, and

the burning asphalt,

Beneath the bare feet of a girl, Her mouth so full of questions for God,

Like,   How could you let this happen, Her

voice

echoes back on the wind


 

Flick

With a flick of his wrist, And the swish of his belt,

I split apart,

One world into...   

Thousands

And     

Was         

no
