would you stand, on fences
of silk and feet balanced on
uncertainty until the cannons

until your lips turned blue in
the sulphur and your eyes
flickered in response to your
stuttering heart?

watch for the demons, the
people with fears taunting them,
watch for the ghouls tearing
themselves out of blemished skin

and watch for me, lover, boy
of ebony and ivory. you have
this burdened heart as i have
yours and they dance in the pale light

but would you wait, love;
will you wait for me?
