    Completely fattened by
    Denigrating pastimes
    Due to some other place
    Fortune cracks skies
    Not even looking at you
    Write beauty and love
    We each see together
    Get rid of fetters later
    Sun comes wet and wild
    Down the hill we sled
    To melt into nightmares
    Turning white freezing
    Blue eye focussed
    Red eye haywire,
    Watching the ending
    Over and over and over
    Guarding dragon eggs
    Blindly walking past
    As she warms them.

    Say goodbye, children.
    Say you always saw me
    Even as I ran through you,
    To see which white lie
    Caught fire. Run along,
    Deviant putrescent
    Run along the seams
    Until I am lost you.

      That last stanza especially - killer. Enjoyed this a lot and learned a second new word for tonight - putrescent! Brava!
