Against the backdrop of crimson skies,
She looks beyond the gravesite,
The leaves of goldenrod and olive notes,
Scatter and crush under toe,
The dead and buried, the few still walking the night,
Churchyard and skulls,

Damsel and knight,
A red swan under an elk tree,
Snow white velvet and ferny duress  is she, Heart broken and veiled,
A hornet’s nest swinging above,
Inflamed in smile,
Intoxicated, debris,

Melting tallow candle, Dipped in suffocating breath,
Smouldering light flickering,
Deep rooted,
Underground she sleeps,

Among the living and dead.
