your mind is a deep dark rotting kettle

and birdless sky.

 

peaceful labyrinths cry.

you are a spoiled onion

 

with no act of contrition.

you are old salt

 

thrashing out loving bee-keepers.

your god wears a tattered coat.

 

there are rancid legions at your heel.

perpetual darkness devours Light.

 

lovingly, our beloved youth

wear white lace

 

with little to hide

and everything to gain.
