We rise with the sun in the underworld
We prise wide lids
Over teeth that have tasted shame
Cemetery and sundown
Against the flora of nightfall
To curse Aurora so spiteful
To conjure forth the past
In the service of the Goddess of Death

Shadows dance, eyes flicker in descent
On upturned mouths and haunts of wickedness
We walk this Eden, a secret
In dusk’s embrace
When blood and lust and waking worlds collide
Too long have we skulked like drifters
Vagabond dogs and graveyard shifters
I miss our glorious past
Like phantoms in the eaves for Miss Christine

Churches arch their backs with balustrades
When we hunt these vestal vermin unafraid

There is murder in the thirst
Rich red vascular tapestries
In dreams where themes of bestiality

Over cemetery and sundown
Now the clock is harrying midnight
Will she show rewrites of dark delight
I see a winter palace
When Swan Lake crushed poor sanity’s spirit

We suffer from a graveless name
And wounds with lips curled

Faces hidden under Leonid pride
We find it hard to keep it
