And brilliantined men
On a bitter night
Oh! Lust and oranj,
A tumult of sheets.
The world is jaded, awash
in myriad coffins.
The moon’s lime face multiplies
Crimson stars and a briar of bridal dresses in the amber river
Justine, That imperial bite o’ the apple
Wine and Incense
The moon’s Lime face multiplies
hide your den away
pull your silk curtain aside
through insatiable nights
i stared at you
and stale nigella seeds
i reached the
warm milk taste of
your golden cascade
the joy of that first awakening
like adam the taste of apple fresh
in his mouth
as the nereids slumber
you are death
