Dust

Milk lake Goddess,
…………certain as a virgin ship,
elaborate as a lost symphony.

Effervescing raw need,
…………she spills  bronzed petals of love’s hunger.
……      Their fragrant flutterings
kiss his dismissive feet.

No pause for warm caress;
…………no moist embrace; no crashing waves spill on the shore.
…………His footsteps press no dip into the sand,
yet sear her heart for evermore.

A blood red ache
…………boils beneath bulging rust;
……………………….it’s all that is left…

all that is left beneath the dust.
