Dark Continent

a cabinet of curiosities
aborted dreams
and unanswered questions
upon the horizon
that lays still
with coppery nectar
teasing the surface
the heavy atmosphere
full to bursting
nestling into a sigh
while your eyes
welcome the haze
of bitter-sweet nothings
with artful enunciation
a legion of cosmic cells
in forthright passing
don’t underestimate
the allure of darkness
even the purest hearts
are drawn to it
