Silent Bones

I asked her not to step forward
Onto this sheet of ice

She laughed and danced
With more than just a sparkle in her eye
The universe lived in that iris
For just a moment

Infectious and beautiful
Without a word
She had me stunned
A statue

The lonely scavenger
Screaming into neighborhood windows
Beauty was never lost without a price
Said the wicked crow
Black and dirty
Feeding off the flesh of the dead

The ice on this lake
Can barely hold itself up
She broke the barrier

Like a squeezed lemon over steak
The warmth from her body
Spread across this lake

The universe had left her lifeless
Now this lake boils

Pitiful crow
Black and dirty
Beak to bone
Poor crow was set ablaze
Never to scream
Into another window again
