Like woodpecker
someone knocks at door
to deliver acorns.

Were it you after
resurrection to pay back
the debt of half-love?

Door will remain open
to let in the known killer
of beautiful sin.

A theme in the realm of Poe. I greatly appreciate that. I recently learned about the woodpecker having a great affinity for acorns, which has quickly proved useful in understanding the reference here. :)
