Do not deny me this
my savage dance with darkness
I crave no other company
save catharsis
in this garden of granite and bones

stark jagged blackened cedar
godstruck
windblasted
looming over stonesealed martyrs

deeper I drift beyond the fringe
where roses grow on lovers’ graves
and solemn eyes keep vigil
waiting….
