Zelda (for Zelda Fitzgerald)

Distress and sweet reminiscence

roamed your plagued mind

Red hibiscus stains the canvas

ink blotted anguish

Your words spat truth

into the bright the midday sun

And the silk life faded

into institutional linen

jaundiced

The fires of hell

you prayed to avoid,

consumed you here on earth.
