Melodious Misanthropy by Adam Levon Brown

Melodious Misanthropy

Rabid ruby eyes
Drink the darkness
with a mouth full of
broken glass

Storm-blackened
windowpanes
screech their ivory
cries of death

Monsters hide
from themselves
in frothy
alcohol

A sip of Hemlock
drowned in
vivacious
fervor

Strike the mallet upon
the oak as this
judgment
has passed.
