Star-crossed and Coupled


out behind a barn
naked in its muddy field
death six feet away

she curled tight against
shadows from a rounded moon
her breathing shallow

gray and weak she tranced
traced movies of first desire
before that mellow

glow of young lovers
star-crossed and coupled to fate
turned the curve to hate

Ooooh. puts me in mind of appalachian murder ballads. "I cried, oh Willie, don't you murder me, I'm not prepared for eternity." Spooky.
