thin red lines

©2023 michael raven

drawing thin red lines
in my mind down the
length of  life in my palm
wondering how long
how long this song
must go on before
i surrender to myrk
and shadowed sleep
mer and slipping
deep under night waves
crested with a name
lost in the lace-wrapped
bundle in a chest full
of memory and dow
beyond scarlet geld
and a kiss beyond price
