take your time, wander
 embrace every breath
 minutes paint story
 hours reek of death

act out your dreaming
 sing a magpie song
 anxious souls make peace
 dying to belong

incense stop burning
 under purple sky
 devoid of ochre
 devils never die

fable of promise
 enriching the wait
 waltzing with tears
 during virgins wake
