Poem – “Garnet for Bones”

Garnet for Bones

The queen of the galaxy beneath the earth
Has no eyes and garnet for bones
A monolith of amethyst for a body
That alters like the shadows of her palace

Never take the roses from her palm,
Nor the diamonds that cap her teeth
She shall strangle thee in her nails
Or crush thy spine with precious crystal
