fill your lover’s room.
Skin mixed with its musk.
So the gods enter. Laughter.
Skin’s deceptive porous comfort
through which they rush
to their 7th, Helios
You and the book share
mud and mud hot mysteries whose confused roots
seven jeweled reins rule deep into pre-existence.
Chaos reined in by planetary whips. Any order makes use of
impoverished purities of form that decay, decay by law
but love preserves each as the bark splits and the trees
are ripped away.
Adore me adore me adore me
images of you dear reader
left in me by the devil’s passage.
Hawthorne. Laughter. Solar
branches track through mind’s breath
comes back to itself
by the help of elves
fixed to its musk.
the voice fades
into a native silence.
These are the two suns mud and mud where the hawthorn
in potentia live and where their images dazzle
her admired whips pre-organize the tracks
fleshed musk thrills the doom of my room

green whispers through
within the ear
and robes flow out

invisible pages concealed in the aether turn bats in the darkness
turn the sound of wings bat me down into sleep
to deliver little by little the brave witchy metal of noon.
