CROSSES OF IRON, CROSSES OF GOLD

Crosses of iron,
Crosses of gold.
Star-striped, tangled,
Octagons sevenfold.
Crosses of iron,
Crosses of gold.

Crescent moons and cloudy skies,
Hexagrams hexed to blur the lies.

Crosses for killer,
Crosses of silver.
Demented, inverted,
Pleasing the sinner.
Crosses for killer,
Crosses of silver.

Misty, dim boulevards
Heartsick, empty backyards

Cross the river,
Cross, lest you wither.
Stone, step, slither.
Drown in turquoise glitter.
Cross the river,
Cross, lest you wither.

Every man should be a star,
I have been a black hole by far.
