Kālī kisses

 

Foot falls

One more after the many

An ancient journey

Towards a forgotten star.

 

Foot falls, through the night

Past demons & mineral mazes 

Through emptiness & bones

Onward, pearls held safe in heart & hand

 

In the closing distance

Her silver tower

Shines down in moonlit vastness

High among roaring thunderclouds

 

Entering & transforming

With feet on chanting silver

With hands on singing gold

Climb these crystal temple walls

 

Foot falls

No more after the many

 

He had kissed her through a veil of darkness

He had kissed her ahead of time

Now he kisses her with thirst born of wildness

He kisses her beyond all mind

 

Foot falls

No more after the many

 

His tongue

His brilliant tongue

Godlike, Foxlike, and playing

Inside her dark mouth
