The Ramingo’s Porch – “Legacy” A Poem By Fadrian Bartley


Hanging portraits
Are stories from dreams.
Some are nightmare
Poised in reality,
And liquify with sorrows.

They stay in the dust of memories
And carry strips of old paint,
From yearly ambition of pride
And high status.

Painted with tears in its glossy
Finish and texture.
But they are horrors,
Doorways and mirrors.

For the new seeds planted
Upon their foundation,
And ripened with the story
Of their passing.

The young inherit sour grape
With cruel intention,
Drunk are they,
With the blood of resemblance
Need dusting.
