Jose Clementé Orozco painting Omicenscia

horsey ô horsey
beloved horsey
ebony horsey
still

here
hearing breath
break
into words

wandering
amonst waste

seas
of saliva
sperm sweat
surtout sang

cloak
i wear
over
robe
of
flesh

skin
of mine
shedding

through which
words whistled
between lips

love
trying
to love

camouflaged
for condemned

walk into winds

night knows
what's been
let loose

sands smeared blood
blackens

cut
away now

fever form
tied in tourniquet

nightmare
remember
everything

exactly
trembling

you are
trembling

hunted
&
burnt

twirl twigs
in palm

bring bodies
over fields

understood
ultimatum

sing
whose skin
sorrow

such sheets
of skin

spread wings
shadowed
by sea

soil
& blood
mud

embracing
skin

hanging from
bones

turn around
& turn
to thorns

horsemen
heading horses
towards tower

lethal
longing

beloved
disappearing
in last
instant

truth so taut

final
blow

horse's eyes
so exquisite

breath into breath
beneath breath

veins
time

betray testament
before barrage

ask no favors

consolation

contempt

conclusions
start
for another
vanishing
point

messengers
arrive
defecate while dancing

ancestors absolute

sequence
of steps

kneel
cross yourself
take in
tongue
& tell

pauses
in path

shout

shred
salvation

weight
of water
keeping you
under

keeping you
from
singing
that song

in empty rooms

vulnerable
vain

sense
stupor of shadows

memory of horses
halts you

beware
of beast
bringing
you back

secrets conceal
sound of souls

come
to crater

witness
wind

gaze
at gates

sheets
of wind

you once wore
breathing space
spellbind

death
with
tumult of tears

remember
burning
horse's
heat
