The Silence and the Clover

from by Sons of Perdition and Jaran Hereid



The silence that lays like the fog on a grave. A despondent lover lying dead in the clover. Bottle held in fingers. The bitter smell lingers on the lips, on the clothes, on the clover and the rose. Eyes like dusty mirrors blindly watch the river. Bees hum quiet witness then depart into the distance. The lover lies alone and with time, flesh proffers bone. You’ll find no note from this lover, nor from the absent other. Go elsewhere with your questions. Here you’ll find no facile lessons.
