Wordle #179

179

I follow your cross expression

To its transmutable keep.

The gold flecks in your eyes

Fizzling like forgotten constellations.

We our old and contemptuous

Living cock over fist

In search of a more amorous feint.

Does your heart burn blue or orange?

I follow the miner, song sinking

Beneath the earth’s fleshless folds.

I waver and whoop in the covenant

Of this truncated garden, a mind

That will neither give nor spare

Its sole tenet the benefit of sentience.

My doubts forming an ocean

Into which I am dutifully extinguished.

*

Test over, brain dead.

  1. Loving that question right now, “Does your heart burn blue or orange?” Sometimes it burns each and every color, individually. Other times, it burns a colorless chasm.

  2. star-crossed

    she
    was
    quite
    old
    when
    she
    crossed
    the
    ocean
    for
    the
    second
    time

    her
    expression
    was
    one
    of
    peaceful
    contemplation
    and
    her
    heart
    was
    filled
    with
    dreams

    she
    was
    searching
    for
    a
    miner
    she
    had
    loved
    long
    ago
    and
    she
    would
    give
    anything
    just
    to
    see
    him
    again

    she
    touched
    the
    gold
    locket
    he
    had
    fastened
    around
    her
    neck
    when
    she
    was
    young
    and
    beautiful

    she
    told
    him
    she
    would
    keep
    it
    forever
    and
    he
    said
    that
    he
    would
    live
    each
    day
    waiting
    for
    her
    return

    as
    the
    jet
    sped
    through
    the
    clouds
    she
    wiped
    at
    her
    eyes
    with
    a
    bit
    of
    soft
    lace

    she
    could
    hardly
    wait
    to
    fall
    into
    his
    arms
    and
    finally
    be
    home
