Graceful pretenses,
The castle parapet wrapped in a hematite ring.
Chain me down, devil,
Right where the pyrite is sitting.
Plastic and gold, alas, my love!
Together we shall enter the empty vessel;
Where once rose smoke,
Now sit only ashes.
You are the only beauty in this hollow cavern,
Convex illusion.
We would have a fire,
But the matches have run dry.
