billie

tossed coins spinning
dusk keeps pulling
at the lion’s mane
pale coals twinkling
tumbling fast into the dark

the daughter

stuck on repeat the sun echoes
through these halls clearly stumbling
up and down those stairs and walkways
steps travelling dearly out
of sight wide flights calling framed by
doorways trailing off in the
distance tolling brightly muffled
a maze in glory sprawling
before the naked feet of the
daughter of our daughter
you dreamt of early in the night

jagged lips stuck tight to dust
a winged key stuffed down the
naked throat raw from keeping
down the seething right up to
a turn not taken shaking
red the aspen golden bright
the reaching bridging rigid
muscles ease the lock lies smashed
