Sarah Sold Her Heart

sarahThe keys to the churchyard,
Rattle in the night,
Smoke and dust,
Eight words and a basket of flowers,
The clairvoyant spoke,
Long stems and artichokes,
A thistle wound,
A bone corset; busk and ivory clinched,
Taut and unbreathable,
A gasp of air, to kill,
A modern thrill,
A lost kingdom,
The king kidnapped of his own will,
A wick lantern,
Flamed the earth,
Skulls and skeletons,
The gallows darkness day,
A battle of the living,
Clashing with the dead,
Ewer and barrels,
Jewels and reign,
Sarah sold her heart to the king.
