THE GATEKEEPER

THE GATEKEEPER

I am the samurai
Beast inside your purity
Whispered the drunken
Gatekeeper
And you, you
Will eat yourselves
Like wild dogs.

The dead survive
Amongst the living
And you’d better
Listen and listen hard
At the head of
A carcass or
Head of an angel.

--This poem is from The Wooden Tongue Speaks, by Bogdan Tiganov, soon to be published by Honest Publishing.
