What Ash Conceived Beneath a Rainbow

The echoes
of a failing eternity

sounded through
the abject crimson

of her lips. I was there
when God was there,

and she was the day,
her eyes

the episodic bailiwick
of temptation.

I slipped and slid
along the milk spilled

on the floor
and heard no one cry,

save those
who found horror

in the conception
of ash, and in what ash

conceived beneath a rainbow
with no edge.

  1. There is some beautiful phrasing in this languid language. I particularly love:
    ‘her eyes
    the episodic bailiwick
    of temptation’
    and
    ‘…found horror
    in the conception
    of ash, and in what ash
    conceived beneath a rainbow
    with no edge’.
