Prior to the dawn ideal

Rose embedded, etched elongated fathom
            within
skin of her sleeping habit,
                                                holding held hope
                                    charged through entwined escapes
by range of night’s covering
                        evidential mourning.  Stolen
emblems
white of alabaster’s normalized temple
                        housing remedy and ache of discovered
refrain
                                                echoing beyond reach of
broken columns
                                    aligning rhythm of her body’s
roaming wishes.
