    SpiderWebShow: Commission 2.5 – David Yee


    dark body moves with

    equine grace and power

    the noon sun forfeits

    to a shadow behind her.

    nothing leads her,

    all of nature follows,

    dusk and nightfall trail

    in her burning wake.

    dark sun pursued by

    dark ignominious tide,

    plumes of disgraced smoke

    from the righteous embers

    of a cigarette

    and this

    penny dreadful
