Inglorious Red

With the sweetness of pimento inglorious red
at the hour of shadows in my mind's eye,
with your breath of amorous sighs
as dusk fades to black on the poster bed.

Of memories when the shades were drawn,
and your musing fingers walked the dawn
like webs of gossamer on my spine,
and your taste of bitters feast.
 
Now as years have strung a talisman hung
with your spell at dusk in our boudoir,
and a choir of motes there for the robbing
as the winds sing a Capella of the robin.
 
With pallor of the pale moon rising
quenching thirst as my dickens' of sin grins,
and your fate is in the gray skies
as dusk fades to black on the poster bed.
