"Sparkfly" is an audiosonnet written and performed by Anthony J Fuchs.

The poem was posted to YouTube on 5 October 2009.


A frigid wind slinks silently through time,
a bassbeat at a feverratic pitch;
an unmetered, hollow, reasonless rhyme,
in poem or prose, but I don't know which.
A fleeting, inebriated sparkfly,
flung and forced by the hand of Fate's malice.
King of the nothing, hiding in the sky,
upon my throne in the frozen palace;
destiny's lost child of deeds and dares,
rapt in by-blown imaginariums,
the tragic fairy-tales in Grimm's nightmares,
tripping blindly through sanitariums.
Unpredicted hatred, brimstone hallways,
treading darkened corrugated pathways.
