roses are too red


violets are too blue

a carnivore magnetism

and horse’s breath

the ravens fled

as well as doves

the remnant frighten

hold loose tongue

powder discharge written in


end of all conversation

ashes of 1861

painted into halls of decadence

puling and simpering,

this haggard old woman

where doth her pride and

honor go?

into the mouths of vultures

chunks of bloody meat

regurgitated for the young

eat of poison knowledge
