cracked
Pathway for the Gods

Pele spurts hot liquid
Red but not lava
Fiery and angry, she attacks
Scorch her soul, burns her frame
Fueled by her own wilting body
Sway; released from thought,
She is a pathway for the Gods

Childbearing is her sacrifice
She tainted another with her fluids
Born pure, impure; noa
Find the keeper of her firesticks

Bewarned, dear uncle
Sacrifice is your childbearing
We two in the spray, one
Embrace me tighter for it is happy work

Pele who rejects weeps for my life
I am taken into the coolness
I am a pathway for the Gods
