the dark muse

sister of the muse of

lights

prismatic spectral play

of pleasant dreams

in her land’s ivory tower

where her dark sister has

been fended off

from entering her domain

her light as strong

even shadows will flee

their spine stripped

to their calcified lies

with continual pain –

she flees with the winged

help of insects

who’ll grow colourful

leafy spots around

her lithe body

while her other life

extends a delicate finely

spun web

of a balancing act

in the trapeze of well-

known spheres –

light-lady will draw

from her dark-sister

all goods she had to

abandon

for pirate forces:

clothing/furnished home/

creative work/ but most

importantly

her luminescent body of

crystalline shine

will blend out all tragic

scenes

of human life.
