the return of the bloody angels

the moon’s sunny teeth
the elder’s
receding feet –

just on the thresh-hold
of the god’s bolted
our laughters shall out-wit
the crocodile weeping
 over crude bombardments –

for blood –
o, blood! our kins’
blood must flows?

and whole clans
must dance naked
into some sudden eternity?

the priest
and the maidens
go afloat –
o, they go afloat
this niger’s torrent!

they go afloat
bearing their wearisome
in vain appeasement
of returning angels.
