Vasant (Sprin) 2018 Poems -Mark Andrew Heathcote



I knocked on a red-earth door

By Mark Andrew Heathcote


I knocked on an earth-red door
And death let me in;
He spoke warm and soft
About the log fire within.

And though I warmed to his charm
His company was dim;
So I shut the door and left,
Drinking Vodka and Gin.

Singing limerick odes for death
About the duties of sin;
Walking erstwhile forever?
'Til his feet made no din
