beautiful with

this will be the time of my life

i summon as i near death

beautiful with

the simplicity of a crisp t-shirt

sliding over my willing breasts


the happiest days

to be carried with me

when angels

call me home to rest


the bourbon queen

shall die content


by the love she has given


there is a limit to the penance

one can pay

for a sin someone else

carved recklessly

lover’s initials and pierced hearts

into pomegranate tree flesh


bury me beside the little white chapel

in Sardis, Kentucky

next to my daddy


it will be the first time

his bones

will make

for good company
