Houses Of The Holy



Apricot heat of
the sun
unseen
beats on little
washed-out buttcheeks

What palisades pull
upon your rawboned
knees?
Will your twiggy
limbs lunge through
The Crunge
& faintedly find reprieve?

Or,
will there be
No Quarter
for sallow souls as these?

Dancing through Days
(No, I know you "ain't disclosing no names"!)
on the anti-rain
plane

Naked love
Over Hills they came
& naked in pain
down & dusty...

away again

For the album cover comp. Led Zeppelin' s Houses Of The Holy album cover has always delightfully confused me, ever since I remember seeing it as a wee thing. There are bits and additions for fans couched in here :)
