Raining Nightbirds

You woke in the night
Screaming the thousand names of God
So I took you in my arms
And I saw your wings of lightning
Spreading storms, licking the air
All the clouds in your eyes

Raining nightbirds, beaks afire—
Sleek with the flames of the scars of your thighs

Your flesh split in a hissing kiss—
Jaws and teeth and bone—
Smiling death in the burning bed
The delirium tremens of your melting reds,
The lunar flesh your lips inspire—

God damn you for your beauty
I could just fuck you to death
Shove all this inside
the thundering dark of your nest

Your black waters rising beyond nightfall
Whispering cold poems
Epileptic ecstasies—
Such tender murder
O my love

They’re flying away now,
Our shadows in candlelit flight—
The lights of your body
Shaming the astonishing height
That my dream hascome to
For you, for you

All my fires are burning you

They torment strange instruments and devices like theremin, e-bow, spring-drum, children’s harp...
