When the Princess Becomes a Prophet by Jeannine Hall Gailey
His hands shake something furious,
and you don’t know how to stop them,
don’t know if they belong to a killer or a lover,
or if there’s even a difference anymore.
His shadow dances with yours
in the streetlights;
your darkness has found a kindred spirit,
but you are still trying
to take the fear from his mouth.
Demons and angels are at war inside of him,
and you swear to love every single one,
swear to love him wicked,
swear to love him holy.
He is licking prayers
he stopped believing
into your mouth;
if you thought kissing him
would save him,
you were dead wrong.
Hairy Trumpet Mushrooms, with Mosquito
Read about the Hairy Trumpet in Fungi down under: the Fungimap guide to Australian fungi …
Cyathus novae-zelandiae (Agaricaceae)  is a fungus with cup-like fruiting bodies that contain tiny “eggs”, or peridioles, whereby this species and similar fungi are commonly called Bird Nest Fungi.
The cups of the Birds Nest Fungi have a somewhat leathery consistency and each peridiole has a hard outer casing, within which there is a mass of spores. The peridiole has a long tail and the end of the tail is sticky, so when peridiole is knocked out of the cups by raindrops, it sticks in the surface where landed .
As its scientific name suggests, Cyathus novae-zelandiae is native to New Zealand.
