A stellar race to a darker place,
the almost dead rattle and hum.
Deserving none of the warm sun,
a coolish death within eventuality.
Gnaw on a bone or lapis stone,
color blue hanging from a mirror.
Piety’s ice now sugar and spice,
eat your fill of a blackened crow.
Sequestered blaze of frosty haze,
dance till dawn to an old sonnet.
Bicycles, tricycles and red popsicles,
stored in the trunk of the clown car.
Circus is life, in a perpetual strife,
soar upon the vibrating high wire.
Expectancy of burning tendencies
shall grasp death within eventuality.
