2/3 in the Seasons at Night trilogy. If you haven’t yet, read the first poem, Milk & Honey. Originally published on 27 November 2016.
Twist my tongue with your arms of smoke, The clouds now erupting from Mountains on fire, Bruising the innocent air, With a harsh grey choir. Throw my heart to the soot-stained floor, Lungs collapsing even before I can waltz, Scaling the mountains I fantasized, As a child knee-deep in schmaltz. Then spit out those mint dreams, And light up another As the moon lingers meek, The night choking, broken, Crying stars down purple cheeks.
