Proof of Fire

A serpent’s son scalding a rose-fractured heart

You endow the night with nefarious lust

I trespass. a virgin and emerge wholly female


If my tears do not dissuade you

Then of what use is salt?

My prayers hold no favor for still you come

Drinking modesty from clenched thighs


We rise inside the same false sun

None shall believe in us, none shall stylize

The repercussion for no scripture above or below

Would ever betray what we together have done
