Throne

_____

Hardly saying words

Your tongue must be lost in sand

I will find water

You refuse to drink my gift

Tonight, I will watch you drown

_____

There’s ink in the sun

It burns as a blinding black

My arrow will pierce

Let ink sink into oceans

Now our veins will turn color

_____

In the hollow hill

There’s a pair of golden eyes

They never come out

If you need to know the truth

Make the gold see in silver

_____

Caught in cement

The king keeps his eyes open

Soon he’ll be bone

Then I will wear his antlers

And roam the forest as king

_____

He eats just one wolf

With the beast’s teeth he slices

The red meat stains deep

His eyes are slightly blinded

Soon he will have no god

_____

The boys who eat pig

They can’t tell whether it’s dead

It makes a slight sound

_____

Face cut with shadows

He steps on frozen rivers

Hidden currents speak his father’s name

_____

Watch me vomit rocks

Give all your silver rope

Tie a noose

Loop it around my ankle

Look how my eyes plummet down

_____

Lost in wood grain

Your tongue spits splinters

Don’t speak of trees

Or you’ll crush them all

_____

Paint an eye on my palm

I will lick it off

Now words have sight

_____

There’s a girl who spins in stripes

She wants to dance with no name

But she’s a girl who spins in stripes

_____

Vultures eat my king

Cut apart by rotting hands

I wish I could sing

_____

Take him to deserts

Let him devour only sand

His insides will move slowly

Listening to every grain join

Wait for no sound

_____

Wanting to dance

You don’t know this is a cemetery

Belief in black birds will only blind

Cry to the man who is a crow

These graves are his church

_____

With the candle’s only fire

You burnt a path from my river

Better not quench the flame

I will flood your steps

_____

I speak to my wolf

His lips dipped in silver paint

He has a story of how his teeth were covered

In our king’s eternal blood

_____

My king walks with four legs

It is so his antlers won’t fall

Until I eat to his marrow

_____

When you taste liquid as air

This will be that day

Make sure you eat properly

You’ll be bloated

When you inhale water
