Life’s Flutters

All the locks in the sky
Gloss my lips to a pompous shine
The debris in mauve heart voids 
Is of timid lights in life

Silken sheen’s dance on rust
Sequins sewn into heavy crusts
Slippery slope’s thrills of a sled
Glasses in the traces of dread

Summer sun rains bright gold
Crowning the fall in blithe hope
The threshold’s eternal may
My spring of clover for jades

Yet when a fissure’s scar bleeds
It answers to the cracking creed
Life’s flutters of rose and thorn
Cascade ashes in pale warn

All the keys to the sky 
Cease my drink of dew divine
Evoking the timid crimson voice
The lit vestiges in life
