Masks of Cardinal Feathers

Drape
Me in
Crimson rOse petals,

garnets,
coraL,
RuBies
and feed me

dragon’s Blood,

cherries,

straWberries,
plums,

salmon,
meRlot

then make me
glow


flush,
blush,
BlooM
till I’m

Rubeous,
carneLian,
verMilioN
as ScarLet hummingbirds
SOAR from our

Mad
voRacious
heartS.

Thank you to the editor of Absinthe Revival for first publishing this poem.
