IT ENDS IN A RIOT OF PERFUME by Alex Stolis

Offering 37 now available: It Ends In a Riot of Perfume by Alex Stolis.

DAYLONG MOON

Sunsets do not move me.
If it remained dark forever,
I would not mind.  A daylong
moon in the sky would be
all right with me.  Little stars
adorning the landscape
would keep me happy.
