each fate a fire outlasted.
Mark it. Tension and respect:
a bear, carrion. Ice melts,
a glacial nerve is required. Hope:
truth as egg. None to unknow;
hide, haul names and appetite.
Say erect, say sorrow.
A nervous and ungenial reign.
A proposition sneaks and beasts.
Scavenged and raptured, my mate is
a laboratory, padlocked. Every
vulture bites at it. Each fortune sinks.
They cannot bite: tongue frost, ash.
