The Crossing Kiss

Snap the heels on your stilettos
Sharpen into knives
A second kiss
Our furious union
If anyone survives

Flowers fall upon the heather
Eyes were pierced with angel feather
Du mal
Gather petals
Nurse them well
Blind hands

Rose of Sharon
Mother's field
Linking hands
Both are kneeled
Before hopes of a brighter song

Gather in the infantry
A war upon the lips
Writhe and sway
This close to sea
A charm upon the hips

A second son
A second chance
Daughters feel the same
Linking hearts
Both are healed
Mercy has no name
