lava.

layer 1: black

oceanic lava blood
turned to sadness
soft red pebbles wrapped like grapeleaves
of honeycombed abandonment


layer 2: red

fierce chambers of heat
sun's disappointment numbed
by blazing glacial foam
trumpets burning scars
on the yolk of the yoke of my thirst


layer 3: grey

my cellar hides a cave
holds hunger
imprisoned by affection.
can sleep still it
within this tricolor cake?
