what Kali sings as she dances on Destruction’s corpse

I’ll press damp soil
draw forth blood
coat my tongue

bathe your words
drown your voice
clear your lungs

cut the thread
that keeps you tethered
to your head

slit your neck
wear your face
once you’re dead

with midnight skin
I’ll dance atop
your bones and sing

bring you back
I’ll fill your void
with everything

I’ll mirror you
until you understand
these words:

My name is Kali,
dearest One,
and so is yours.
