Aries (Prints available at link in bio)
Sheratan - Arietis
Naïve and tender as you are kind.
Ebony pupils in once vivid eyes,
In lethargic rhythm they close, in dreams confide.
Silhouettes of presence, time it dries
Skin, creamy, messanger of fortune so wise.
Expected spring, your cheeks have blossom,
Roaring in tropic, sweltering heat,
In steam and humid mist embosom.
A jungle in you, your stiffness, your vague tweet
Muted, woods held up, in high conceit.
Entitled to resentment, you refuse all viands,
Neglected soul, found never thirst in you.
In flesh more nothing, nothing more than strands.
No Sun can warm you, your vehemence subdued.
Gain nothing with struggle, let go, fall through.
I see you, the core of you, through translucent husk,
The stream of blood still pumping fast,
In your head pumping, pumping, pumping brusque,
Drowning, humming, pulsing, puffing blast,
In your dreamful fast dreams have come at last.
So fearless, so eager, so missed.
