the work/ blade chalice chant...


(Vision fantástica/Asmodea)
'Fantastic Vision', 1819-1823
Francisco Goya
Museo del Prado (Madrid)
.






the work/ blade chalice chant 

warm tide the quickening 
you spend your frozen fingers 
listening to your starved quiet 
knives watch suns climb higher
fever eagerly beneath sometimes

a reign of absent 
huddle hearth desert
coming to an end
days are weighed 
with what 
shadows wear 
where the wind
got inside 
their elegant decay 

the bones need flesh 
now and forever too 

you work 
blade 
chalice 
chant 
spawn 
will 
what 
how 
why
