    dotsQuitting Time dots
    -------------------------------------------


    Burnt offerings on a stony dank hill
    Arthritic bones feel the bite in nights chill
    A dozen sacrifices left to inter
    And I'm wondering what became of her

    Where is that young priestess that I once was
    That young woman my mom called peach fuzz
    It was a thrill to incant mystic rites
    To divine entrails by bewitching firelight

    The first use of the obsidian blade
    That undulating shriek the virgin made
    But it's gotten old like my weary bones
    I need to rest and spend some time alone

    Oh wouldn't it be fine to live at the lake
    With garden weeds instead of guts on my rake

      Grim New Year? Not much for this dark stuff. Besides, virgins are in short supply as well as highly overrated.
