Adieu.

adieu
wearing a deathlace
in the bony garden
the pretty women as statues
when I’ve known none of them

eyes, not mine, stare back
if I have failed, let me go
through dooms of silence

in suffering of the first born,
the last born, upon the orange groves
and syrup of my old home.

    Transfixing imagery, Lucy, and filled with a (rich) resignation.

    I have a question, and I do not mean to pry. Nor do I need an explanation. But your poetry is often painful and dark — and beautiful. Is everything alright in your life? Sending you light and faeries just in case.

      Oh, if I had a penny… 😁

      Sorry, it’s honestly funny since I get these questions here and there. My life is fine, thank you for asking! I’m kind of like a horror writer, I guess, with poetry. I hope all is well with you.

        Well, you do it quite well! I need to put a toe or foot in the dark pool too. Take a stab at writing something dark. You inspire me!
