Scarecrow the only survivor

Once I lost you.

Saying hello to the honeys

In the end we were not

Run into the ground

So much as abandoned

To reality, raw and sensuous.

I slipped out to take a piss

And soaked our love

No matter. Least now

It can never burn.

Our eyes pretended to fidelity

Ears choked on lies

Lies that boiled like

Caught salmon in my head

But the fire got stamped out

As gathering clouds

Snuff the stars at night

To leave less love than ghost of love

To linger like smoke in our hair
