Random Poem:

His Dancer

He married a Dancer
In the church on my cliff
In a room quite forgotten
with pink and blue webs
that play off the darkness
Like the voice in my head
So I cried at their wedding
Waiting to Dance on her grave
And I spat on the presents
nobody gave
He sang for his Dancer
                She’s been spinning ever since
He sang for his Dancer
                To tunes that I miss
