from by Black Coral



below the cheer
a naked eye
bleeding men scattered far and wide,

a time has come
the ring of fire
we dance in silence and point and vilify.

the acid lake
the waves of sin
people clutching their falling skin,

a wall so high
you cannot climb
scrambling like a bird with broken wings.

the lamps are dim
the curtains drawn
never to see another morn,

your tears of joy
in the plague of war
I never guessed that you’d rise above us all.
