Fluttering leaves that discover the serpents uncoiled

rain on a mother’s bleeding breast

and awaken the Dead Eyes, drunk from stricken desire

but consumed by the atom split when panic feigned pleasure.

May Dragons enflame, and blossoms vomit ash

when fledglings encircle fences that unbind.

May the Woods entomb the glittering moonlit tanzanite

in a womb of intoxicated flesh.

And when hidden routes flood the borders

and Mortar holds only petals,

May soiled bones be forgiven

and the Soul be unbound.

Tanisha Bhana – 10 Dec 2011
