Prussian blue suicide

unintended chemistry
explodes into
near accidental antidote
metallic blip
the poisoning was sublime
and yet I could not
allow your slim form
to heave its last
in an airless chamber
clutching cloud balloons
ascendance is achieved
as cyanide gas
seeps into autumnal
all that remains
are white shodden feet
tap dancing in time
to the concrete shiver.
