Sanguine Symphony

The table is laid with sanguine silver

Warped simulacrum on each surface,

Spoons heft maudlin mud-pie emotion

Fiery feral fork scathes each masked face.

Clattering cutlery tinkers pretension

Sanguine symphony in  the naked sun.

The feast is spread

To-be spooned and fed

Knives to dissect forms, cautiously tread-

Deceiving notes just swell and fade.

Radiant sunshine harsh on silver

Macabre symphony, meaning’s deception.
