Blush Stained Cocoon



Bordering likeness in a moonlight trancer,
Seldom does a consonant invoke matter
or mastery of magnificance
as poetic as macabre--
That is why girls waltz with rapier,
romancing eddy doodle dandy
until he fancies them a tourniquet
so they will not be reminded--

Dulcimers placate the cirrus evening
with a tune only four bars long,
but repeated with a plucking that
not a single lady could possibly hammer--
So insects hide, exposing cover
only to steal the blood they
wrap inside themselves.
