There are many tables

July 26, 2011
Eve is a Noctium
a velvet cushion of light
celestial palm leaves,
sprinkled with dew of ancient diamonds and garnet sweat
make soft beds for the victorious dead.
Violet cards
slapped upon tables of walnut and oak.
They have seen many years.
Or do you prefer the palm leaves
to an existence solely underground, where all life revolves
around an alien deity of the earth.
I dwell in a rose, where time is otherwise
and the shears approach steadily.
