a well.
lunges
down
into fertile ground
matted hair
dangles the
edge
precariously
falling down
as snow
snow fell
black snow
snow that contained
ssssss
sssecrets

 

snow covered
cotton fields
cold
so
so cold
everything
black
unable to
see
just a
cloud of
dark dark
cotton
to rest on.

eyelashes so serene
delicately
balance
feminine flakes
that
turn
her eyes
into
well-like
globes.

 

her
lips
burst
blue
and
beautiful
black
skin
begins
to crumble
away
with
snow

 

nothing
next
to me
but a mound of glittering
black dust
pouring up
piling over
the wall
where
something else
once
dangled
down.
