I spy a cascade of delicate, frosted lace
And veils of transparent gauze with a diamond shimmer.
Threads of silver and gold float up over my face
And I am soul-deep in the glimmer.
Lovely ribbons are wrapped around my neck
And artistically tied in the hollow of my throat.
I breathe in the jewel dust and golden flecks.
The noose tightens and it all denotes
Such pretty lies.
