Vermillion was His Name by Adam Levon Brown

Vermillion was His Name

 

Vermillion crustacean drinks

in moonlight train-seeking

 

Hallowed perennials eat

Malthusian cinder blocks

 

In eves of pyre-high planetary orbit

Prussian Satellite Jinxes sublimate

Jerusalem Crucifixion in the name

of risen peace

 

Jingle bell folly exudes Constantinople

pride while serving sentience on beds

of broken fingernails
