1.
August began its slow descent Into the arms of winter Elongated shadows swept across rocks As they danced in starlight White hands yearned to stifle The chimes of children's cheer That hung in the air Like linen soaked in blood Their pink palms blistered Forced to grasp ragged ropes Wrestling with lurching sails Of anchored virgin vessels But urgent hands clawed the hulls And snatched them from the shore Sand lacerated unmarred skin That bled beneath waves Laughter faltered in their mouths And was torn from their throats Until clouded milk-white eyes Extinguished new-born stars Upon each day that followed from August to July Lines of crooked mourners bent double across the bay Lifeless flowers bled through silver foam Abandoned by listless hands bereft of faith Their bones grew old and wretched Black teeth crumbled into dust Grey rags fluttered in silence The last lament of forgotten love He does not bleed For the lives he stole No one grieves For the lives he stole

Disgraced 09:35
Awake at dusk Suspended over barbed teeth Tasteless tongues tear at the bay Carving a grin I try to scream But my lungs cave in Quivering lips Form silent pleas I am disgraced You aren't erased Struck a line Scrawled their name It's not the same It's not the same Awake at dawn Interlaced limbs The smell of smoke And summer's air Our lungs share the first breath and sigh "Our love will never die" Sleep unties these knots in my stomach And returns the smoke and that summer Our lungs share the first breath and sigh "Our love will never die"

Fall 07:56
Sky fires flare Abated by descending snow Waves draw back in silence Trees, they tie their tongues Leaves breathe soundless songs Blood hums broken tempos Fleeting fears are starved of life Marbled feet leave earth for air Mirth is spun from threads of grief When white ghosts drift from frail bones
