I made Leviathan

It was monstrous  
Yet I slayed his generous advances
How could I have predicted  
Sure footed  
Both creeping pounding each  
Both snarling sides of face  
One sweetly  
One harsh and dripping breath whiskey  
Snoot and scowl  
A bronze fist the left  
I caught it like straw  
The right as if snow had fallen on my lashes  
Not that I had wept  
And neither did I laugh  
The laughter caught and kept  
I saw his eyes each  
I saw belladonna  
And fire  
I saw hate and love  
And the slow death of the Sun  
Into a chill night  
Casting tender mercies
Until another morning  
Where pounding crept  
Where my aching came
And peace had slept
