dame of the dark

dame of the dark

A Poem by kamiya

how the moon snuffles her beeswax candles!
dripping yellow suns 
striking on moons rough skin 
sun drops match from pink tongue

black monoxide flames rise
a crackling carbon ash
grows veins in the sticky midnight
a sort of heroin chic

burlap sacks of coals 
beneath her eyes
she puffs stars
out her pond 
like cigarette dust

moons freshwater pearl children the stars 
 pop white heads from her onion womb
---her bald silver newborns
twins triplets so many!

but when her lover the sun 
pours her a goblet of his port red wine
she peels her children like sticky pearls
oh Diana!

how you kill your children
and subjects 
with winter glares
rough as your lunar craters

 when you rest overhead sea
the siren waves follow your moonbeams 
like plump bees to winter jasmines
salt snow lining the granite shore

and I stargaze as you change your phases 
 your flesh turns blood red 
from the suns scarlet light 

how you burry your silver bones 
and pearl stars under Amythest 
crawling into moon snails
 drunk off suns red wine

we all 
are your Luna moths
chasing onion moonbeams
and you and your bald children smile
all 100 billion of them

Wow, wow. This is beautiful and just so cool. I love the metaphors, this story, the haunting and darkness of it. It has this layer of macabre and it flows beautifully, gripping you with every word. You write this in a way that I love. This intricate story told through poetry with contrast and metaphors and strange images. Thank you so much for sharing this piece.
