The Onion Snatcher

Blush paper lanterns
spin to dusty confetti
chaste aneurysm.

Temporary death
papier mache hips bleed bright
origami rape.

Pristine white cuffs leer
scissor sharp eyes gleam delight
at line of paper cups.

Filled with onion skins
ill desires and hushed sighs
parched moon glows to red.
