Atrium

‭ ‬far from the cavalry clash‭ ‬—‭ ‬

‭ ‬ ‭ ‬the gnash‭, ‬ the naked rage‭, ‬

‭ ‬steel fangs on flesh

shredding bloodlines‭ ‬

in storms of ecstasy‭ ‬

‭[‬eye‭ ‬

reside‭ ‬

here‭] ‬‭ ‬

‭ ‬ ‭ ‬

‭ ‬far from the panicking crowd‭ ‬—‭ ‬‭ ‬

‭ ‬ ‭ ‬their calls to break‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬the hands of Time‭, ‬

to crush Her bones‭ ‬

‭ ‬in mortars of moon ash‭ ‬

‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬for seeming elixirs‭ ‬

‭[‬eye‭ ‬

reside‭ ‬

here‭] ‬‭ ‬

‭ ‬‭ ‬far from hauntings past‭ ‬—‭ ‬‭ ‬

‭ ‬ ‭ ‬the ghosts‭ ‬

‭ ‬ reborn‭ ‬

in school halls‭, ‬

‭ ‬

‭ ‬the wraiths‭ ‬who serenade‭ ‬ ‭ ‬on train tracks‭, ‬

‭ ‬who promise peace‭ ‬

off cliffs
