#84 (vaporized liquorice)

sweetness

flooding every second

of his fractured memories

as he is washed

ashore

riding the fleeting

light of dawn


kissed

by Venus’ calm

his sorrows fled

into the constant

yellow glow

of streetlights


six crows

and a black cat

spun a nightmare

of feathers and fur

heavy and sweet

like vaporized liquorice

inhale, exhale

the scent of

nevermore
