CROWNED HEAD

Shipping Weight: 7.2 ounces
Madness thundery gist of dream and dross
Ring where the cave of future rings
Cherry between me and the boogeyman Nothingness
My wind-tossed head a flurry of feathers
Shoots sparks as hammers strike anvil
Dazzled by undeserving pure gold fortune
Stormy hammers surround it
Crown it with the fresh forged
Hot circlet of the infamous calling of misfortune
In chunks of the infamous calling of misfortune
In chunks of dripping scarlet pain
I’m terrified all this splendor
Will make it pop
