A spiritual thunder with soft, cool sunsets
Explode as the volcano’s lava flows done
In a flood on a highland of self-assurance.
A nurturing peace in a moment of cultural
Madness your laughter not damaged from
The proud disdain and mistrust.
Your body speeds up with charm and rueful lust
Amusing the senses in a cloud of wild honey,
Contemplating clay with your desire gone in
Sly defeat. Grant me suspicion for courage
Making a fool out of false piety for our future
Will be the fate of folly and destiny the memorial
Of her promise. Schemes of dreams share familiar
Moans of loss. Weddings and conflict, corruption
And compassion are at home with intimacy.
Delight in the hunger of your breeding and the
Grit of the lion its cravings, run like rain to wet
The brightness, for only power is branded to
Define creation and devastation with equal
Force, admire the style and spirit
