Find credence

reading bloodstones

for contradictions immutable.


Crash and condom insolute,

fingers at my neck

teetering & inscrutable.


Magic & fire locking horns,

paint this body

the tireless color of salmon


diving pink into the Red. 

Spawning eggs

on banks of gravel,


scandalously high!

as a mountain of death –

Love is weather,


love is the sea

tide in, tide out

chasing currents


for odds, insurgent?

Restive as the sky. 

Riven to a cross –


it leaps, it stalks!

Born at sea,

both horn & fly.


Coils & zigs

along a whispering edge,

a flat out rush –


between the loathsome

& the sly
