Verse 34:  Yellow

Verse 34: Yellow

A Chapter by Glen Yumang Manese



Does blossom of first spring rise to complicate matters?

Only her petals and fragrance radiate too vainly.

One falls purposely to her budding flower of false pretenses.

A smell of her nectar is slowly poisoning a harvest for the bees.

Send them to the temporal perils of queen’s lost beehive.

There is only one to claim power of complete authority.

Lethal venom hidden within her roots is emerging to see.

Bad seed is growing each day to claim her invidious yellow.

Nourishing the feed continues a living stem to become aesthetic.

Answer to a question that defines beauty is conceding.


Antidote is running through capillaries to tell a truth.

Thoughts to words are softly killing to pluck away her inner layers.

Forgetting all contemptuous attempts is cleansing the mind once more.

Only her thorns will pierce in numbing a victim of many.

Vainglory is not the passion to love, but hate to those opposing control.

Absolute anesthetic is her ability to administer a contaminated dose.

Temporary pain is acquiescing to indulge her presence at face value.

A lover, a friend or an acquaintance, but evil villain is in the end.

Mysticism is a brief adoration to encircle those at arms' length.

Blind those to reflect her image as the ultimate fixation of desire.


Sharp injection forces a fever to escalate in temperature.

Sacrifice is a serum to cure mischievous lies in contempt.

Her chlorophyll begins to turn color of autumn.

Rising sun does not fulfill her glorious ambition.

Retention in the blood stream is no longer a cancer.

Reversal is her ugliness wilting to fade no more.

Dust of her rustic filth blows a Sahara storm.

A last cry of her anger to call foul play shows full array.

Her seed scattered many more for the taking.

Caution forever scarred in a tattoo of skin-deep.
