the gods sleep with limbs
out s t r e t c h e d from
celestial pearls to the
infinitive -

eve walks along the garden
her sulfuric tresses catching
glimpses of flames from the
archangel's holy fire -

adonis emerges -smelling of
myrrh- from the tree (of
knowledge) & offers solace
with pomegranates & woos her
to forget -

tehuti lives within the cycle
of ra & gaia channels ma'at
surging life throughout the
cosmos -
