Holding Back Vultures

skull with a rose
in its teeth

a smile not easily
defined

dead alive

faded
Roman numerals
free

please
don’t be
another Blackstar

my fragile heart
can’t handle it

still enough time
to change the world

with popped collars
wing-tip shoes
dancing in the rain
on a sunny
day

behind blue eyes
and pain
