Grim divinity,

your haven in the sky

casts an eternal light

and parts the tide for

me to dance across.

Caustic trinity,

how you burn my tender feet

and curse my dainty fingers

that strum the lyre chords and

beat the wayward drummer’s tool.

Heady melody,

I swing my sultry hips to

the words that escape your lips,

audacious in the incandescent rains

that fall from your vile place.

Sweet calamity,

to the sky I build my castle,

careening up the spiral stair

as you set fire to my pedestal.

Now I dance among the ashes.
