The Drought of You


Image

I rain dance for the drought of you

blackbirds die in the wells of your eyes
your chemical love
pin cushions your heart
a toxic beating
your lips now kisses of a dry death
cold twist
for nothing is left
the very vein of you
drained

this sob I hear
a blackbirds cry
brittle
as your hip bone cuts
like a sickle moon
into the death bed
of your spoon

I watched as your spirit
slowly committed to a suicide
your pin cushion heart
a strangulation of tourniquets

the hangman of your life
waits with a knowing
for the drought of you will come

your hollow words
now scream at me
echos of your ghost
hanging limp
breathless

in an empty well

once full

I rain dance for the drought of you
