Der Drang

White dog hair – everywhere
Fish, the fast to break
Big black dog sleeps
under these German, starry skies
Remainders                  remain                                              remind

Blendung

Licht griff seine Augen an
Der Toröffner war weg,
erzählten seine Finger
als sie die Sonnenblende berührten.

Transmutation

 “The killer awoke before dawn
He put his boots on
He took a face from the Ancients gallery
And he walked on down the hall”

(Jim Morrison, “The End”)

 The Templar reaches for the Black cloak
He walks on into the Darkness
To perform the Work
Of transforming Pain into Hate,
And, from Hate, to condense
Light.

Black Moon rising.

Per tenebras ad lucem.

Silence; or, Solitude, followed by an Invocation

"Silence" - Notre Dame di Schauenberg, Alsace, France

“Silence” – Notre Dame du Schauenberg, Alsace, France

Call them back, Silence
Call back your heralds
Not that they encircle me again,
Poisonously treacherously around my walls

Be dismissed, Silence
Dare not to reappear around these walls
Once tightly shut,
Their gates are still open the gates were raised

Not to ever shut again
Depart, Silence!

Hekate Hekate Hekate Dea trivia Dea terribilis
Goddess of crossroads Hekate Hekate Hekate
Io Pan Io Pan Io Pan
Come Pan primeval archaic male manly
Consort with Her
Mother Goddess Whore Lady
Of all sorrows and all bliss
Stabat Mater Dolorosa
Come!

This Void of Mine

Uphill to a forgotten place
a stone laughs,
its echo filling the silence.

bbq blues

modern-day burnt offering
a smell, pleasing to the gods in their heads –
Children run,
Parents eat drink laugh
Ah, a summer barbecue´s sounds!
Its fruit, solitude.

bad karma

Your kisses are not mine
anymore,
and the lips they touched are
closed,
dry
as a lily
burnt dark by a Saturday´s scorching sun

Céu azul

Airplane, unseen, crossing the blue sky over those once clear waters
sunny Sunday quiet afternoon
brings back memories of him, who never Was.

Five floors

Flying down five floors
Did she have the time to think
Of all she was leaving behind
Of everything she must have thought
Wouldn’t come back again

Five floors flying down
Was her landing uniquely soft
Was there time to feel
Cold air touching her face, sad always sad
Cold air her hair’s last combing

Flying down five floors
From the Amazonian jungles
To the hard old stone paved Paris streets
The stones so near the windows so open
Open mouths calling summoning commanding seducing

Trip over, this. trip. over.
