Stay Calm

Tags: dark

A long time since my words lived                    
pale in the eyes of my disposition
with a breath no more in my ignition

As if a conductor on the balustrade  
now gone to task with a mortician
with a shadow of death in my audition

Feeling your kiss upon my brow
with lips of the burying widow
for there ain't no sunset when dredged

With a breath no more in my ignition
now gone the way of poets
with a zipper down my torso  

Stay calm and embalm
