lighthouse

you stand proud over earth
as if to grow old

you have heard many a cry
from the pointy jaws of your sea

Five Islands harbour you
you dream of endless mirrors and
fresh window panes to make
ready for the night

you

seducer of
trousers and petticoats


you stare soundlessly into cobalt light
reaping the throb of genitalia
the sleepless seed of Aphrodite

the night is gothic
and it takes off all her clothes
she is black eyed
full of fish
and plays with the hem of your surround

luring you to life


Angel of Darkness
March 28 2004

Beauty of the world which is soon to perish has two edges, one of laughter and one of anguish, cutting the heart asunder.

The Fates are smiling with wicked delight...
in the background of my small office, I had
on some Celtic Myst music, and the Song of Solomon was playing, complete with ocean surf...

so the read was more than delightful...it was a true experience!

Thank you, little one.

You, Darksis, are filled with gothic image
and play subtle with the hem of our imagination.

The images flood in and fill me with wonder and I think, I know her. How privileged am I?

Here in the midst of my lonely abyss, a single joy I find...your presence in my mind.  Unknown

I still say you're one of the sexiest poets at Pip, and this just proves it...

again, with the haunting sensuality.

mmm. mm.

you stare soundlessly into cobalt light
reaping the throb of genitalia
the sleepless seed of Aphrodite

the night is gothic
and it takes off all her clothes
==================================
