The Wake


Beauty encapsulated in a red velvet petal,
the earthly luminosity.
Silhouettes of galloping fouls and wide-eyed midnight owls,
caressing the earth's dusty crust with innocent bone and feather.
Swans dance on the glossy river,
noble and depressed.
May the light dim hastily and burn within our chests,
and the sticky black wax fall with affection,
for all eternity.
