Five of Pentacles

midnight, midwinter
by Lana Rhiannon | September 12, 2020

stained glass faraway
shattered by summoning
two sapphire checks
with half a heretic’s heart
snow blood lips
trace silver lace
binding soul to skin
as the corpse bell tolls
the last false awakening
of those who seek the kiss
that blooms the rose
