Age of sweetness embitters the devious
Landing between lips
Then disappears.

Page of silence clamors the violence
Swimming across fingers
Then escapes.

Edge of Florence kisses the glorious
Dumping beyond accidents
Then expires.

Judge of righteousness ignores the obvious
Mixing up juices
Then retires.
Cage of breath impounds the curious
Spilling over legends
Then croaks.

To Claudia Haynes, an angel called to heaven
Where’s no more forgiven
