How you wound
closer, tighter, cleaner
only to recoil
the slither of cowardice

the way you always have
~snake
in history of fate

Twisted metal
night vision
captures your silver
magpie wanted to keep

oh
what
a
season
to
be
alive

Matchsticks upon the fireplace
all these attempts to burn you
to ash ridicule
of November.

Hey gem . . .
beautifully penned

to ash ridicule

this, in itself an oxymoron
ash ridicule
*smile*

no rebirth here for this one
nope nope  . . .

I have missed you
and this, is . . . just . . .

winter
xxoo
