Demeter’s Tears

she can feel it
in her oaken bones
as Boreas strips away
her festive ball gown
her night
is coming to an end

  1. soft petal faces
    lace from evening’s paces
    all through the rain
    and into each carve
    the tides turn
    from shallow to undertow
    from tourniquets kept
    to hope still alive
    from the bled release
    of anticipation
    to a muslin hem
    ready to rise
