Two Poems

Papilio Enim Mortuum Puella

Wings smear face,
a gentle paste against coagulated flesh
embers taste too well.

Cooperative claws, branches of free-will,bloody girl
peripheral fingertips for the dead girl.

Crow conundrums molest the sky,
prefix for the butterfly
contempt for the grave,
burial entices nothing
whispers silk somethings
to favorite bones,
rest no more.


shaven amongst the well water
freshens fragile botherer,
lemon martyr

press the defining leper
leather skin,

Systematic discussion,
shoves input
fiery cranial suggestion,
your savior.
