>The den napowrimo #22


Tomorrow marks another day

in the opium emporium

Pepper mist hangs indistinctly in the air

Crows are sitting on the divan

I flinch, they squall

Tendrils hang about my face

Saffron flowers in my mind

I am dizzy with ecstasy

Sounds reverberate in the night

Rust forms on the walls of my heart

I am fierce

You die
