Subtle Language

Subtle Language

I learned the subtle language of the dead.
All living languages are blatant things,
comparatively speaking. Filled with dread,
I learned the subtle language of the dead.
Hey, now I’m filled with confidence instead!
I know the strength that resignation brings.
I learned the subtle language of the dead.
All living languages are blatant things.

Raise a Spirit

Raise a Spirit

 

Boldly, I raised a spirit from the dead.
He made the same old boring conversation
He had in life. Though warned, I went ahead
Boldly: I raised a spirit from the dead,
One I had known. Did I recoil in dread?
Not at all – but my yawns knew no cessation.
Boldly I raised a spirit from the dead.
He made the same old boring conversation.

 

–Tom Riley
