Dark Arte

Pure ink
Heart of pitch
From the beating inkwell
To the instrument
In my hands
Within me
A dark alchemist’s reverie
Madness spun in formula
Order in delivery
Arcana most abhorrent
To nature’s unbending reality
Let me breach
Mortal limitations
And reach
For the immortality
Found within twenty-six letters
One alphabet
A recipe
For a false god’s divinity
Structure immaterial
Turning parchment to gold
Ink to filigree
Ambition to fruition
As the dust
I once came from
I return to again
Kept alive
By the kiss of a pen
