Mar 4

Ode to Somnus



Blind reddened, tearful eyes; mute mumbling lips,

Deafen Midas’ ears, remove caustic taste,

Dull the longing feeling of fingertips,

Make wild, gay abandon, and harried waste,

To this waking corpse, this saddened rev’nant,

Shrouded in ragged sheets of mortal cot;

My paltry bed chambers, my lone bastion,

Giver of solace during dire lament,

Grantor of crazéd dreams and wishful thoughts;

Protector from the riotous factions.

Nocturnal repose, e’er disturbed by day,

Renewed sorrow, unknown ‘morrow conveys.


A reluctant indolence I entreat,

This scared Io fleeing his gadfly peers,

In Morphean fancies, longs him retreat,

From their scourging tongues and derisive sneers,

I dread to slip from thy waning embrace,

Whence Aurora’s radiance bids me rise,

To rejoin, each morn’, with society,

To relive old suff’rings and long disgrace,

To gaze, by daylight, ‘pon Phobetor’s guise,

And wilt under dreadful anxiety!

My coy, feeble heart sinks with climbing sun,

Restored briefly when uncaring day’s done.


O, guide this weeping soul to blissful sleep,

Deep, deep, deeper into thy forlorn abode,

Either to thine castle or brother’s keep,

Sweep away life’s wanton worries and load,

Heaped on daily by uncouth neighbors,

Hearing few peeps and giving fewer figs,

Adding only steepness to my ‘cumbrance,

This creeping pain, these ne’er ending dolors,

Reaped constantly by these arrogant prigs;

The destroyers of my meek innocence.

O, honor thy suppliant’s humble wails,

And remove this dreamer’s troubling travails!


G. E. Hernandez

  • We’ve entered a foggy time Where only the insane are truly free Politicians thrive With agendas where their brains should be. Where “dialogue” is shouted curses Wielded like dull-edged swords And our defense against this loud banality Our faces sunken into phones, terminally bored. We no longer slouch towards Bethlehem But think its existence is just fake news. The truth is no longer a solid thing But a clay molded with our views. I’ll not try to do what Didion did, I’ve neither the competence nor the need To walk around in different shoes In glasses smoked with weed. I’ll just erode in peace here dark While the world in every direction implodes to dust. The red of it not iron-based – Eternal quiet the only end to our distrust.
  • Etréstles asks oblation to the unfortunate of the World .. he asks to give his offering House that is not his house, to synchronize your departure to be in the company of Solitude, He does not have his sacred Cemetery before leaving for Nineveh ... He has disappointed himself of the Archpriest of Ayia Lavra for his strong telluric pains in his marble abdomen ... The holy oil that furrowed his forehead, furrowed his soul he has not recognized himself when his own umbilical nap has flourished a wafer of the Messiah who has traveled alongside him by the pavilions of Messolonghi in clarions rubies .. My father Staktos; come, I have not yet received the indulgence of abandoning what is not abandoned, I need to hear your voice from my sixth reincarnation playing on the roads of the oracles that illuminate the world, which is yours and the Messiah Choir on the Magdala heavens . Father I have not yet gone, and so many lives I have lived to see your distant face on grass barley resembling your breaths of late sunny spring celestial sermon sermons. But this time I want to cheer you beyond the imagination of eclectic anemia, with the aching pain descending through my impure heart. Nothing torments me more than to move away from the hells that do not know that I run through the prairies towards you without getting tired, imagining that I will fall into the neglect of your forgetfulness. I quickly lose my Laud from my right arm as a short-handed little fish, to commit the indiscretion of anticipating me to worship you with my dislocated left arm that carries the Harp from Lethe confiscated from Euterpe. Harmony that ignores Dinora in the false forests of Messolonghi in flames. You are my cobble who pierces the cries of my crucified hands, timbers of lymph incense next to the sweetness of your words that grew green in my dreams. Challenge with this interloquy of your incandescent soul, this is how The Last Temptation of Etrestles begins with its bleeding fingers, in the inflexible forgiveness of praising all those who want to dance with the mothers of the Shadows; that Staktos is his father, before reviving him and resuscitating him in his exodus to Nineveh, land hunched over by the Host, tortuous and artificial light shone from the recklessness of him who will make him sleep through the desert of life in farewell fantasies. Winds are felt singing whistles of hydrogen sulphide rocking from the edge of the cliff of the cloud, to fall on the shoulders of the timid death, False Blood, clumsy blood to wash my feet on Virgo and Jupiter in the sand. . Father, in purgatory, make the sounds of the new dawn without any detail or gesture of repentance. Thus Etrestles receives the Eucharistic host offering in his holy mouth and runs down the corridors of the great mysteries of the Nothing of good spirit of all Mantle. To be continue…
