Her ribcage is broken-- a demonic dragon
crawling over lifeless hatchlings whose kaleidoscope
wings, unfluttering, decay beneath the wind.
Rage lifts her voice only high enough to cast
breadcrumbs of villainous hope to the valley below,
falling like a thousand seborrheic flakes
upon the flames of an equinoctial bonfire.
Jagged-edged elbows carve furrows
into flesh no longer fresh enough to repel
the maggots laid in the folds.
She lives her lies where the cinnamon sunset
dragged across the misaligned stones grasp
the Byzantine mourning of perpetual loss by the balls.

I told you this rocked! You my darling friend have lost none of your flair and if anything your imagery has become more vivid.

Adri is right, metaphor abounds here, in conjunction with the use of imagery, that makes this jump out and grab the reader. Horrifically excellent.

Such images conjoured up by this superb piece, had me looking in the dictionary for "equinoctial"  Bill Harborne

Fantastic, the usage of metaphors are amazing and the construction of the execution is brilliantly done.
Of course nothing else expected.

Wow!  Such a fantastic use of language -- I now have in my mind such stark yet colourful images thanks to your great writing.  More...please...?
