Acherontia styx

Love's moths

By Halston WilliamsPublished 3 months ago 1 min read

Passing porch-light

where grey love-moths

flutter to each other how each lover's

Love is like the Sun

(stare too long into its face and you'll go blind)

Through lingering dead leaves at night

scatter drops of wine

for new violets and death-beetles

Love is like the Moon.

Where does the path lead?

Each to their own place is led.
