the last sin
  pale ashen sky
a bleary eye
clouds of recurring screams...
i am a zoo
  an octopus leviathan
tentacles into an ocean
of unformed emotions...
syphilis and love  
  syphilitic pall
stifles the clear blue
i contort...
 
shell and pearl
  amidst highs and lows
in life's ocean flows
a shell peony-mouthed...
 
i am an unmarried mother
 
  fed on stings
of barbed milk morality
my child-plankton...
 
the lovers
  cell upon cell
bridge of their union
hung on the pillars...
rebirth
  ogre of age
and time cavil
at a warm picture...
the young today
  innocence thaws
at the altar
of ambition...
 

an eternal golden braid

one: good morning

rain
and
thunder
calm
and
ripples
a song unsung

black
and
white
blue
and
red
a virgin undone

sun
and
shadow
moon
and
eclipse
a soil unsoiled

and love?
a thought banished, a hero exiled

did you say good morning?
