from where?

forget knocked
down from heaven
to hell -- how about
one who remains
nestled inside
of an oubliette
fashioned
black bart liquorice gum
by the kings
of purgatory
secluded
singular
silver cobwebs
adorn an aged
portal unaware
of travellers
close proximity
to a place
where memories
soar on the plumage
of humanities
bile & disgust

tragedy deems
opaque
window
nerve blockers
away from
any intrusions
-- but not from
the most important
self-imposed
charcoal
attributes
of secrets
concealed
within the oblivious
versification
of a mad
woman
