the turquoise of denial, /carnelian wound/ that flowers 'cross the drifted snow
The moon is blue ice

The moon is blue ice,
an ocean frozen by your stare.
The fire's hidden deep within.
It's there you'll find
the turquoise of denial,
carnelian wound
that flowers 'cross the drifted snow.
What can you know
of icicles in tropic climes.
It mimes deception, shows a placid face,
a smile of frozen rime.
