when on the heights, a promise warm / sleeps in silence ‘neath the cold
To be a lady in the dragon's court / You must be a lady and a dragon both
Violets are blue / as the hue of your eyes, / like pieces of Heaven / come down from the skies
bound by spheres of glass // as the songbirds sing // they growing ever younger
from the bright'ning byres of flaming rebirth / from phoenix fires and death unsung / ring in the day the earth will rue
A flaming torch to manuscript / As lovely as a rose
fire aches beneath his skin / pain has scarred him for his sin
she was old, her lines were tired, but her eyes were bright— / to ask what it is, this marking down of history / like stainless steel tines pressed down into meat
Answer, turn and answer / Then turn the stone again
dead words upon a page / concatenated ink / don't call it litterae
mirror, mirror that reflects / in the glass you see your face / mirror, mirror, show my dreams / your body moves with studied grace
Missed me? Kiss me. / Oh, we'll be here a while.
The way you leaned over the bar / foaming milk, whipped and creamed / eyes intense, and called me barista
To all my friendly spammers, / with such nice words to say, / I don't know why you like that post
the kind who always has your back / but forgets to cut you slack; / the kind who wishes harder than / she works, but yet still works
The Queen of Heaven should not care / When lost were all the reeling stars / The Queen of Heaven tossed her hair / Retorted, "Don't you know what's ours"
Shards of heart make life as glass / Where once it flowed
are the blades the reaver reaves of heaven / are the dream the seeking seekers dreaming
Who from blood can a butterfly make; / Who can heal and make it take?
No hint of storm disturbs / The fairies at their dance
This will not do! For what I am / Is woman, not a female man.
Knowledge solid, fluid (is) / Unlearning ev'rything.
Whirled 'round, making and unmaking / Raze, raze heaven 'til it gleams
I want to run from this spell you weave, / But I've forgotten how to leave.
and time shall be hereafter / writ in heart our souls' provisions / wound, unwound by dreamers sifting
Her heart her every tear it shed / Their glitter burned in him instead
