painting Jose Clemente Orozco

future
fallen on floor

veins
& arteries weep

weep

weep
between breaths

violate air

raise rain

time despoiled

sweat into sea
as spells cast
dust drifting

corrode

bend
at knees

hold your gaze
stare at stain

kiss
serpent's teeth
& tongue

wait
facing waters

ice floes
flowing away
from body

bent
on breaking

this
so simple

holding hand

body bleeds

desperate
& determined

seduce silence

read bruno
or burn

burn
brightly

body

hands
trembling

trembling

collapse
into chains
worn around neck

so serpent sang

so serpent sang

cross waters

speak suddenly

step
into silence

shrine by sea

spend time

doctrine for
catastrophe

read
in euphoria

read
in ecstasy

utter desire
sing

respect presence
go
speak
now
almost nothing

time
prefer poison
turning inside out

time
to
go down

abjection
specialist
in sorrow

call it
yesterday
search out days

go
red stars on hearts
down

man
see less

beg
to
learn ropes
wrapped like ribbon
around neck

remember

time
conceived
numbers of horse

grow up
in hell

name it

remember

to
reveal secrets

all come
come

come
dig earth

so deep
strike
heroic postures
atone
as archimedes

city besieged
miracles

call
how

spell out
your howling

clear cadence

collapse

mourn

library
burning

ash

taste
your howling

believe being
going

down
valley

below

below

depth's
depth
