"Kyrielle for Bonnie and Clyde" by Naomi Jean Lewis

He laughs out loud with eyes of stars
His heart tattooed with jagged scars
He smiles at me, like Hell-fire bright
We drive on through the moonless night

Fighting and swerving on the road
Weary-souled, but we keep our load
Highbeams fly by with fading light
We drive on through the moonless night

Bullets with our names, carved in deep
We flee on to our bandit’s keep
Escaping home; we nuzzle, bite
We drive on through the moonless night

Happiness is your hand, my gun
Baptized in blood, we became one
Our stolen car rumbles with might
We drive on through the moonless night

No place is safe from hired men
Like Daniel in the lions’ den
We’re on the run in constant flight
We drive on through the moonless night

Two sinners’ souls, ‘neath the sky
We won’t say, “no” and won’t say, “bye”
Together our burden is light

We drive on through the moonless night
