red envelope


an envelope, red, with the glue on the lip dried
crackles crisp, floating on the tide
of emptysalty tearborne streams
wetlucid velvet dreams

o she's crimson terror
flicking her tongue in ryhtmic tones
my bones shiver and negate
deep inside this loveworn gate
passing out
fainting at the locked words
adrift amidst a hidden fleet of corpuscles

finally found, go!
forgiven stains bled rightly so
blissless woe and carry
to where shame and shadow marry
to where these breaths blow

envelope, red and crisp
floating on the tides
bloating the hides
skin tight and weary
now erupt

now corrupt

and even in this light, this style, you gleam. you have true talent mari, truely. and each poem of yours i read i think you can not do better, and each time you prove me wrong. this one does just the same. its elegance and heavy glow are amazing.
