New Women’s Chiffon Tops. They’re just so chiffon-y.

Songs of the Wild Wood

Rain drops like glistening
Tears on a glass skin
Rainbows refracting in the light
Turning to blood
In the setting sun
Never-healing wounds
       Heart stopping
       Heart twisting
A tattered cloth
Inscribed with a
Blue blue song

In the moonlight
Stardust flickering off and on
In a code
Known only to
       The mad
       The desperate
       The broken
Autumn leaves hiding
Yesterday’s bones
Covering them in a blanket
Made of a forgotten Spring

Notes twinkling in the fog
A sing-song faerie poem
Whispering of mysteries and
Old news about
       The King and Queen
How they negligently lost
Their everlasting bond
Down a well of despair
Bottomless and dark as the
Very last night when the stars
Winked out one by one

Tendrils of sunlight
Reaching down through
Dew drenched branches

Floating dust motes
Highlighting the
Darkness within

Rain drops dripping
Shimmering like jewels
On a snake’s discarded skin.
