“Candy Heart Crime”

“Candy Heart Crime”

Thanks for your patience—

Do I deliver you in secret—

When the wind talks.

When the hoarfrost rattles

a cage in a cave,

your ballerina slippers

the jackal within burns bridges

cast iron steel aflame

the candy heart crime

webs the cottonmouth snake

steals the kittens

a princess invited me

candy stripped of cane and vipers

removes the nail polish of hammers:

did love forge a future:

we,

emerald crocodile to emerald crocodile

forever in flame.
