"Persephone" by Amanda Pape

Lilac eyelids, mouth in peril

lying in lamenting snow

My malignant heart gone sterile

melting in your gauzy glow

Supple pink sorrow, naked breath

settled with the evergreen

Maiden still untouched by death

ripe and tender tangerine

I took you, without second thought

Your warmth to cauterize my wound

But you bruised like an apricot

Your fervor for me to consume
