Candlelight – December 2022

Between bliss and me
Grows a berry tree
Under molten blue pyrites
Indulge in law and sequence

Paid respects to the Grand Old Party
Each word swallowed up by the sky
A new danger behind the door
His furniture, an economy of pain

Pulling down the slums with his hand
Street and field
Let them bleed
Like a beetle near candlelight

Hurts to live
Hurts to die
Cradled to sleep by memories
Until I forget once more
