Each stanza is derivative of both a single and the collective winners in the AD poetry contest.
Winter has settled within my bones,
taking quarter of the hollow
left from this marrow chill,
it's walls painted with sanguine and sallow
I feast upon the blood in your words,
here, for flesh and breath sustain first
and foremost all that is best and worst
in this night settling empty in my thirst
I desire the darkness, and the flame,
for my yearning speaks of wonder as it wanes,
amidst the stuffed out cigarettes, scribbled panes
of glass empty at long last, free from the libations insane
Alright, I'm ready
to ramble a double entendre
making a risk of games,
played with Jack Frost's freize
