smoke signals

barren and shameless
drift to the abys
an oubliette of painted windows
conjure the serpent’s hiss
jagged edges
lure virgin skin
shedding memories
the heart stretched thin
solitude in a moonlit jar
bittersweet ambrosial truths
glimpsed from afar
hang on the precipice
wisdom and youth
it is
just this
collection of moments
trapped in a shell
held deaf to an ear
tales dropped down the well
unaware of the fear
residing in flames
of constant vigil
none to lay blame
the spark caught a breath
when she whispered your name
she summoned a death
no sorrow no shame

smoke signals
