mad seer. spider of the south. slowly and gleefully spiraling into incoherence.

idolatry (as blind as faith and just as sweet)
why do you lay such praises at my feet?
why the silken hymns, slathered on my skin
like fragrant oils?
call me not your goddess,
heed! heed well the warnings of those before you.
why do you call me an ocean?
nay- why do you love me for it?
i am not the scenic gentle beaches of the north;
i am not as kind as your lagoons.
heark! hearken the cries of the drowned.
why do you kneel?
why do you lift your eyes to me
as if i am the Moon herself?
do you not know

curled and coiled
slipping, silken on your tongue
in silence, we are sung
though touches scream
there is no need to explain-
no use in trying
what language holds now hymns
for nameless gods?
what temples reach towards
our voices, crystal spheres lay
heavy in our lungs
a thousand tongues have we
yet none hold gravity enough
(one did, now torn asunder
with the tower)
a cleaving, a bereaving

the color and the name : birth
black is for birth. white is for death.
red is for everything in between.
but her birth was ripped from death's pale hands.
it's always been a wonder.
the air was that of mourning.
her father sat in the waiting room;
weeping and praying and weeping.
the doctors had prepared for a stillborn.
she arrived tiny, skeletal--
more a fetus than a baby.
but she arrived with breath,
and breath enough to scream.
and the scream that split the hospital halls
