Snakes on the stage. Performing. Disjointed dances. Stepping on the shadows. In hungry efforts to reassemble weak splints on brave bones.

Forgotten things. Obvious asides. From across the stage. As her dialogue dwindled. Pale monsters flirting with the curtain. That keep the darkness a stranger.

Trifling with madness in a rapture of sanity. Jasmine in the courtyard. Lilac in the passage. Stories she almost told. Faces she still sees.

The fail safe failing. As I stumble into her calm confessions. Loose stones in high walls. Bartering with obsession. Her awkward stare. Explaining everything the future didn't.

The butterfly is sneezing again.
