Stephen Bone- A Poem


I was the first choice
before my thunder
was stolen.

None could hold a candle
to my carved rictus, hollowed

What do these orange fatheads,
swelling on sunlit ground,
know about darkness,

the tomb cool earth,
with its teeming cities
of fat maggots, jigsaws of bone ?

'Turnip' was first published in Three Drops From A Cauldron Samhain Special 2015.

Stephen Bone has been published in various magazines in the U.K. and U.S. First collection In The Cinema, published Playdead Press 2014.
