this maroon water

by Oksana Lizunova

                    this maroon water
                    of payback for fear –
                    my one-blooded manuscript:
                    heated red sun
                    cools roaring
                    time cast as steel
                    wallless meaningless world
                    because on my shoulders
                    open skies
                    minted with unshakable words:
                    bloody trail
                    of sirens of eternal memory
                    of God’s name
                    on my lips
                    because once my weapons
                    were by prayers
