"Abbey Roads"  A Red Merle Aussie.



Let Freedom Ring......



Dark smoke spirals, 
ashen, bony, twisted, bough
archaic oak.

              Ike* 1995                 


Words, words, words, colorful words! 
Blue, green, gold, black, Oops Where's white?
Thrown against a crimson mountain.

"Primeval bones"   

Pressed tighter and tighter with no light, 
until they squirmed, wriggled, their doom to lay upon stones.
One old hand still clenched his sword.

Ike* 1995
