30 Pieces

Raging flashes

time on fire

seconds flaming

moments pyre


Burning scepters

light betrays

torches fury

embers pray


Blind inception

blistered tongues

motion melting

boiled young


Bars of silver

chains of gold

locks of platinum

ingots stole


30 pieces

forged in lies

minted falsehoods

struck alive


Nights of crimson

skies of red

life has moltened

—ashes dead


(Dreamsleep: May, 2022)
