Fortunes Of My Tears
I see the future
in the constellation of my crystal tears
as you siphon the sparkle off what’s left of my joy.
Heavy is my heart where you spread your composting ego -
sacrificing my fire.
to ascend from darkness
on wings of breath and light
is not lost on me ~
as you strut your fan of peacock plumes
for my flickery flame.
