the Sanguine lover’s prayer

May my pressed flesh, pale
Bloom in carmine brilliance under
Your Eternal Eyes that hold centuries of

Forever my God of Sunsets
Shadow lord of my heart
Forgive me Father for
I am Sin

Call me home to the mantle of your
Great dark wings
Suspended between the
Gloaming and the blush of dawn


Every Damn Day In June
