sobbing a priestess

shit does not spare for now is my lover
come all tangled eyes down mysteries
o the long nights of behold

i laid hold of her bursting burden
dear my lover choicest strange perfume
risen in question-mark communion

so my lover's made me falter all of you
her love-sick hallucination this all of you
and impulses and sorcery that lures and her

o shadows and blare
i die every night shattered
in whiskey-mouthed

sobbing a priestess
lover lover take drink
take drink from it now

true here's this truth
i'd wasted in sitting
fists lost in chemicals

and asking fountains
and divine lifts
and trauma and shock
