    Night after Gerry died



    To the masses, I became
    stranded---And passed
    around the stage---
    like beer.
    Tonight, met I,
    one thousand sets of
    peering eyes--the
    stage became impassable!

    Then on we rode---
    into the heart of the beast--bucking, steering
    me northward, as wind
    found sails, my body quickened
    to the sound of drums
    And fire mixed.
    ----The night held dreams
    of long ago, the heads lulled
    And Rolled, decapitated to the floor,
    while I, beheld the
    moon--full in its moment,
    cushioned by graying clouds.

    Wonderful wording. Good imagery that leaves your reader wanting more. There is no ending really. Good cadence.
