Queen Mary and the Grapes of Purification
dance upon the floorboards.
Dance to the heartbeat of life
and the screaming pulse of the dying.
Let all the room know,
you hold the key in your hand,
the key that puts a glint back in the soldier’s eye
and removes joy from the heart of the tyrant!
dance around the room
until the shards of broken glass fade.
Dance until the darkest hour
becomes something new again!
My eyes closing for the dream of night
and whereupon waking, I smile in your delight.
beat the floorboards with your majestic trance.
Beat the floorboards to the bouncing dust
as time removes itself from this moment.
