Death and Life

In the Park at the Aurora

Beetle with its broken elytra,

Seeing agelast children buying life from the market of dead

Drinking the ichor by the needle bed,

Confused between life and death

They see evanescent death coming and going near them

They feel hiraeth for their body wearing diadem,

Dead despot took the soul away

Finding those cadaver lying supine sleepaway.
