Maroon

the brooding tones befit the
bonfires ‘tween our sheets,
spreading, claiming,
consuming all
that’s bed,

lavish but subdued, deeper
n’ clever, ever the
ruddy hint of
dead,

fluids pooling thick n’ running
redder than wine tints the
floorboards under
head
.

and so it goes, n’ guess now
we know, maroon’s the
deepest stain
set.
