Cheshire Moon

Cheshire Moon

Sky blue walls suspend bleeding hoarfrost, plummeting mercurial vapors seep unchecked into folded cartilage. Yearning arthritic arms envelope stained fiber shards tacked among the celestial ceiling.

Cheshire moon grins.
Black heaven sparkles.
Wind heaves.

Autumn remnants chime, scurry, stumble across white dunes. Crystal tide shifts, connective tissues loosen, fallen apple mentors. Sliding masses rumble, shake, tumble. Darkness snuffs oxygen.

Cheshire moon grins.
Black heaven swirls.
Wind leaves.
