Red Priest (renovation art 7)

Red Priest 5Red Priest 1

Thigh deep in the swamp of forgetting

you believe you have found the Eden snake,

the flute of the infinite, the heavenly pump.

and you choke and blow and stroke

toward the surrender of the second coming.

 

You do not remember your own body,

how holy and precious your breasts and tail,

and so you reach out to contaminate the innocent

in the name of the holy

you desecrate desire and are a coward of love.

 

Art and Poem by clinock.
