Jealous of the moon
Jealous of the sun

Sweat of eyes washed
Washed away unpaid

As the cupid pictures fade

Jealous of the noon
Jealous of the dawn

As rainbow loses colour
To the galaxy of stars

Beneath the white-blue cloth

Now the muse has deserted the ink
As the ink swims in unfaulty dam

Should the white be blooded
Before the cloud sweat-wet?

I submit to the innocent guilt
