Lei of lilies, spray of roses
  dying on a window corbel
where a blackbird decomposes,
  keening e'er a frozen warble;

open-eye'd as if awake,
  though the  orbs are dark and dull,
motionless a hanging snake
  out the socket of a skull:

Fleeting clouds of starlight streaming
  silent on a windowsill,
silent trillions' feckless screaming,
  leaving all in darkness still.
