you go bats

in bone dry

dry flood

of night light


night night


there’s no need

now now

to be so shy

come and feed


the banquet

in the tower


the table set

w/ black flowers

(the pollen

is rust)


& great eggs

cracked open

a silver plate

and bowls of blood


raise the ghosts

from holes

i cut in the floor


holes i cut

with a sword
