Dancing Jaws of Grief and Hope

Dancing Along the Jaws of Corruption

Those nights when anthropomorphic dreams

Invite you to a death dance

Where ancestral spirits

Take possession of you

And your soul soars across the heavens

Fraternizing with the stars

Only to rest under the shadow of the Northern star

Constant as rigor mortis

We wake to a debilitating pandemic

Freezing our movements and our joy yet

Stirring our thoughts

At the edge of a new dawn
