|In black core of night, it explodes
Silver thunder, rolling back my brain,
Bursting copper screens, memory worlds
Deep in star-fed beds of time,
Seducing my soul to diamond fires of night.
Faint outline, a ship – momentary fright
Lifted on waves of color,
Sunk in pits of light,
Drummed back through time,
Hummed back through mind,
Drumming, cracking the night.
Strange forest songs, skin sounds
Crashing through – no longer strange.
Incestuous yellow flowers tearing
Magic from the earth.
Moon-dipped rituals, led
By a scarlet god.
Caressed by ebony maidens
With daylight eyes,
Noses that twitch,
Singing young girl songs
Of an ancient love
In dark places
Where memories are sealed,
Burned in eyes of tigers.
Suddenly wise, I fight the dream:
Green screams enfold my night.
Suddenly wise, I fight the dream,
What’s up family – forgive my ramblings. Hope all is well.
