Siren Song For Bottled Blues

Siren Song for Bottled Blues

written by: Sawyer Stewart

 

A Siren song has
blossomed every bottled blue into one luminous Violet hue.
My eyes are starlit by a sky that is starless.

Contradiction arises and thrives
in a town so feral with loss
for we cannot escape the convictions of sin.

Why,
does this moonlight burn my skin where the sunlight used to shine?

A Siren song has
blossomed every bottled blue into one luminous Violet hue.
My eyes are starlit by a sky that is starless.

Perhaps, this needle of the sky
will also bear witness to this betrayal
of fact and fable.

A Siren sang for you
because I have departed too.

May I,
eulogize a circular town?

“Green powder flat line.
Sunset, Sertraline Seance
Together again.”

My name is Sawyer Samuel Stewart. I am a full-time student at Cascadia College. I am a creative writer and poet based in Woodinville, Washington. I have worked in numerous fields that deal with complicated and stigmatized issues of mental illness, discrimination, grief and death. I have worked as an Emergency Medical Technician for nearly three years as well as served one year in an acute behavioral hospital located in Snohomish County. It is the mission of my poetry to address the stigma surrounding these subjects by giving them a safe space for others to relate, recover and heal.
