a bloody-mary-red sky
is illuminated behind green-green trees

I wonder who got slain this time
to paint heaven
such a beautiful-disaster color.

and these days
the sky fades to its pseudo-melodramatic darkness
as fast as people forget the dead
and relish in the pure-pure diamonds
on their writhing fingers.

It's the eternal curse
(diamonds are forever)
