arcs of calcium drip on Japanese rice paper; white
no mercy is given to a map of veins
the fire of destiny flickers; desire’s light
a tapestry of orchids and pearls and violets reign

no mercy is given to a map of veins
a wreath of braids tumble loosely like tendrils; down
a tapestry of orchids and pearls and violets reign
moon shines through the trees, creating beauty’s shuffling sound

a wreath of braids tumble loosely like tendrils; down
“follow the wall,” he said, leading to the center, a tablet of stone
moon shines through the trees, creating beauty’s shuffling sound
forest’s moss soft bed of cool carpet; moan

“follow the wall,” he said, leading to the center, a tablet of stone
skin peels, blossoming at the seams; a vespertinal rivet line
forest’s moss soft bed of cool carpet; moan
layers uncoil revealing the core, turquoise faceted crystalline

skin peels, blossoming at the seams; a vespertinal rivet line
the fire of destiny flickers; desire’s light
layers uncoil revealing the core, turquoise faceted crystalline
arcs of calcium drip on Japanese rice paper; white
