duets with other poets – melinda foshat


betrayal

“…the greater you love the greater you suffer…”

-Lao Tzu

 burningrose

Something Blue

something red

 

Spattered wine preserves

dregs staining crystal bloody

Indentations of his clutch

palpitations of betrayal

 

An indenture she shall serve

steely cold spiced with irony

 

With a canvas for a frock

her pallet a chalice of tears

Behind a bouquet of knot

a still immaculate phoenix burns
