Dark Knight-tress 

This gown I feel nothing
Silk less feelings
The odor of intimate apparel lessens 
Vanity fare from any sun
Warrior of beauty
Where have you gone?
A fortress of gloom
Not even death wants in
Black nail tips
Brownish plum lips

I close my eyes 
I see them all
The Shadows
Climbing over my soul
The darken deepens 
The stars dim my view
Irremovable makeup
Land becomes an enemy
I become
The Dark Knight-tress
Scolding my next victim

oops, looks like you don't have soupmail, so I will ask you here and hope you just comment back to me somewhere on one of my poems. One of my friends thinks that your haiku contest on feathers needs to leave out feathers from the haiku or senryu since you said, "put feathers in the title." I interpreted you to mean, we have to put the word feather or feathers in the title. but this does not mean we have to leave the word out of the poem. Am I right or wrong. Please let me know , will ya?

It is certainly very dark! However, depending on how you read it, it does appear to allude to a certain amount of intimate ambiguity. Very nicely done...An excellent little poem!! :) john.

Wow Skat. Dark Knight-ress indeed. Your words put me in mind of the depiction of hell (sheol) from the movie, "What Dreams May Come" Your poem was expertly written, and I enjoyed it. Grats! Christopher Thor Britt
