Scythed wheat sighs and gallows giggles
Laughing-shriek echoes and phantom limb tickles
Cold stone embraces and unanswered I-love-you’s
Grave soil ‘tween toes and unsaid goodbyes
Harvest moon sobs and stillborn lullabies
Cold-fogged breath and waterlogged lungs
Heart murmur discords and postmortem hiccups
Snicker-snap skulls and serrated caresses
Crow beak kisses and black feather blankets
