Dylan Willoughby

Let vernal airs

have gone with me,
you vaine lunatiques
I have the serpent brought!

and all is a feaver and
shall be so

death ghosts death but
ghosts do not die and
the stone
but only a shadow of
fierce tears

we are a lump
of slime - what
have we conquered
that has not
so vanquished us?

converse with fire,
as you like,
you will only enter
the hull of rubble

I have a missing friend,
missing friend
