burning

1.
burning
silhouette's
shadow

saliva soaks
soil

stains
soil

seething
ebony sea

find
words in thirst

bury
word of honour
in horse's
carcass

clean
cloth

follow
viper's
vow

do not
grieve
small god's
grief

bury sun
under
beloved's
body
with beast
& bouquet
of bones

wrap
yourself in rags

borrow
crow's breath
when slithering
through viscera

with vipers
torso
tensile

virulent

violent

make
memory with mud

ô black blood

ô black birds

sun
set

2.

weary
ô so weary

burden of bones

essence
extinct

in flame
land of rising
sun

serpents snapped speeches
seemingly endless
in ancient sleep

howl
i howl
how
i howl
how

possible
to sustain
sighs
below

below
breath

remembering
breath

breath
of slaves
within body

remember
to turn
wheel

wind
comes

weep
when words
come

take your seat
in skull

bring birds

still made still
with little
bits of string

strangling
silhouettes

let lemons
soak skin

skins
remember
how you brushed
hair of horses
in hell

tremble
in tree
of lemons

spit out
juice

blood

comb hair
of horses back

remember
how you brushed
hair of horses
in hell

enraged
waves
glow
