I dreamt a mother in a cool green grove
By the sea of shadows in the Silent Empire,
Beyond the cliffs where the pearl divers dove,
Her eyes as cool as blue sapphires.
I became the night in her winks and glances.
I gave her my penitent white lacerations
Carved in the Tree of One Thousand Branches
Where the Feast of Lanterns lit all nations.
Somewhere between ape and angel,
I wait for when the latest change'll
Make me whole.
I dreamt a snake leaped thirty feet
And smashed into a boulder and exploded.
A naked hairless boy lay dying at my feet.
With his last breath he said, "I'll forever be devoted."
I will never hold you.
