Outside Normalcy

She sacrifices – her Young

Hopes extending – her Duration

Once children – cries Sung

Winters approach – ill Recreation

*

We revel – her Massacre

green, red, Orange, yellow – colors Falling

Final decay – now Brown

Premature funerals – sparkling Crowns

Imperceptible Fire,

Deaf beneath in out Temper

Something in human birth.

Acid eroding Air

Copper vapor from Water

Abandon own to Earth

Hostility in Fire,

Starving crows control Temper

Something in human birth.
