Secret poisons, demon dust,
Secret lonesome; never-changing,
Dripping rust like wine.
Linger staring, linger fainting-
Reddened blight like scratching, falling…
Hardly mine and hardly caring,
Frayed and flutter at your door.
Gentlest, gentlest, white decay,
Limp and crying, sick of trying,
Acid. Silent, grinning dust…
Linger deep like wine.
