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!

paradoxically loath and sly.

Born at sea,


both horn & fly.

Swaged in along

the wind whispering edge


sheer & taunt –

to a brush,

catchwork rent & nigh.


The run up – a fatal rush!

foraging rapids

fatty red flesh, jaw & eye.


Thor tapered tails

horn & stray,

by polar magnet & sun.


Obliquely honed

to smell where smolt,

& a wilding crazy run for it.
