The boys wear their own blood like regal, red, robes
Lying as if sleeping in the gutters or upon the sidewalk
Blood flowing down over their eyes like a dying dawn
Red sky in the morn, sailors be warned
And when the rains come to mourn

Hearth Stone

I am Máire.
But here they call me Mary.
I've green blood flowing through me
But they laugh and tell me it's red,
They're liars, the lot,
For I come from a land of every green hue:
Beryl and Bice and Basil;
Sage and Seafoam and Sap;
I lived...

Dear Juliet

The poets and dreamers think it romantic,
But love is a cruel, macabre jest.
While love dies, the devils laugh;
As your *Forever* turns to dust.

He should have known you were not dead,
Your body still breathed, your lips still warm.

Dear Ophelia

Is it cold in your river, Ophelia?
Do your milky eyes still see the light?
Can you still hear them singing your requiem dirge?
Has the water made you porcelain: fragile and white?

Ophelia, are you weeping?
Have your eyes betrayed you so?
