Beyond the bronze gate

Written by Joseph Hope


Locked like the passage of rite,

the gates of the underworld


won’t open unless you have lost the key

to the door of the living.


Crawl under your skin and

you will find the backdoor to the temple


of the three beautiful black sisters

braiding  their hair to keep score


of the stray souls that have stared

at their beauty and begged


never to return back

to the land of the living.

Spread the love
