A Bitter Serpent's Feast


smiling coy
bat your eyes
entreating boy
pleasant sigh

bat your eyes
longer glance
pleasant sigh
a taken chance

longer glance
lovely roses
a taken chance
happy poses

lovely roses
full in bloom
happy poses
summer swoon

full in bloom
soft and steady
summer swoon
ever ready

soft and steady
under way
ever ready
passion play

under way
sweet devotion
passion play
soft emotion

sweet devotion
fading smile
soft emotion
extra mile

fading smile
trouble brewing
extra mile
quiet stewing

trouble brewing
lost recourse
quiet stewing
soft remorse

lost recourse
fading light
soft remorse
building spite

fading light
contemplation
building spite
and trepidation

contemplation
autumn days
and trepidation
parting ways

autumn days
oft repeated
parting ways
again defeated

oft repeated
question why
again defeated
summer lie

question why
smiling coy
summer lie
entreating boy
