Dust


Vase                      full
of once-red roses
years browned, perfectly

Florero                       lleno
de rosas, en su día rojas,
volviéndose, hace años, cada

carísimos arreglos

Virulence


Strings of a violin snap.
Notes squeal the air
a thunderous shade of purple.

Teeth-snapping jaws
spew venom into the iron
scent of evisceration.

A frenzy of claws screech
across the eye of the hurricane,
through rollercoaster ruins.

Broken words take a victory lap,
having ruptured every eardrum.



It's National Poetry Month at home. From a poetry prompt called 'assay'.
Constructive comments, especially from poets, are most welcome.
