One Thousand Mystics

 

Ten Eyes awake

quicker to what is arcane

800 ears bathe

bitter to what is mundane

Cocaine, Skin pain

are pain

when beckoned

to fire days

.

the dusk shed tears

She is a hate

For the earth

explodes into nudity

.

myth – mysteries

are empty in gold soil

intoxicated hearts

degraded. . .

.

kings

are becoming servants

to the King

.

Every step of the soul

is a subject

Arts is a womb

&

…when not injected,

urns in the tomb. . .
