but in gathering Me Thou Gatherest Thyself

but in gathering Me
Thou Gatherest Thyself

 

daystar that hovers
over the heavy waters of that Sea
bright stone that fell
out of the fiery eye of the pyramid

it grows
out of the snake as out of the crescent:
apple you eternally devour
forever in your hand. I lock
the elements around you where you walk:

earth from my terror
water from my grief
air my eternal flight
&fire / my lust

I am child who sings
uninjured in the furnace of your flesh.

Blue earth am I & never on this earth
have I been naked
Blue light am I that runs
like marrow in the thin line of yr breath

I congeal
waterlilies on the murky pool
I hurl
the shafts of dawn like agony
down the night
