    congeal
    the remnants
    of embers
    etched
    in my cheeks
    where
    bleak tears
    sing across my face-scape
    in off-key voices.

    suspend
    the crumbs
    of half-eaten
    affections
    complete with
    sugared-drizzlin’s of
    sweet remonstrations
    and night
    moods.

    i
    breathe
    in the
    funky, down to earth-
    in the earth
    stench of sunsets
    coupled with sleeping
    dreams.
    our
    desires are
    buried beneath
    the vaulted
    ceilings
    of terra cotta
    and ‘we’
    hope to grow…tall n strong.

    When I read this I envisioned Ethiopian landscapes. Your poetic brush has a knack for painting scenery that takes our minds to various places.
