Tis dark With ants filing Like a hungry lover’s obsession Atop festooned nuptiality Iridescent with passion And comely pleasure expectations   O’ manuveures Landings and trepidation As a woman set to birth Yet weary Could not deliver Engine blowouts Bursts and frets   O’ blabberings Descent announcements Sitbelt fiddlings As a banquet laid for mirth Yet Kakos disallowed it And many cabin burnt.   With what exchange With what money Could salvation yet be bought Fraught will hollows Wasted ambitions Ending all the cries and groans.
