One Poem by Dan Greenwell

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.

Le Lit Rouge

Midst gun-metal grey of a steel-hard world,
An island of living, of deep scarlet blood,
My pallet of passion and pensive repose,
Where I can be me, without or with clothes:
This shall be my ark if there be a new flood,
On my bed I’ll remain as destruction unfurls.


Dan is a lifelong fancier of music and of the written word, and was naturally drawn to poetry as the fusion of the two. He also plays video games, watches Asian television dramas, and studies the Korean language.
