On gossamer lips Wisped coppery tendrils Showering sparks Riding evening breezes That radiate off my Eyelashes in papery Wet slivers Sticking only when Your song of ill-boding Is breathed over me Its primitive amity Contused and crusted On baneful syllables In sweet consummation Where at last I see the Crumbling bouquet That’s falls Onto your pages
