March Madness Honorable Mention: The Ides/Phil Benton

Come with me

to forest’s nascent yawning

alit in spark of ide’s promise

join those of like voice

the song of Salii

slough the sheathe of wintertide

dance with flaming spear

pierce the beggar’s rotted flesh

feast in grove of Selene

under buxom blush of lavish moon

Take my hand

shake free your whorled locks

taste the claret hue of tender dawn

run free as dire wolf

bare fang to suckling scapegoat

tear the flesh of lesser being

howl to the quaking heavens

the sacred song of Attis

free at last of winter’s tusk

ripe with fruitful seed


I’ve managed to escape the corporate world, rid myself of excess belongings, travel the country extensively in my old Winnebago, and find a new home on a beautiful barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico. I define myself as: a free spirit, a writer, a philosophical anarchist, a poet; a lover of nature, a lover of art, a protector of animals, as well as a devoted friend and partner.  I blog at Think About It (candid views from the endless highway)
