Torn pages tie
hands behind back

beautiful beyond belief

time
trawled from deep

blessing ground

hold lamp

foundation
under skin

nothing
but blessing

feet
touch
soil or sea

everything évaporâtes

run
horsemen come to gate

blood hour

overwhelmed by omens

ghouls guide
passages

climb
out of pit

man of war
sleep soul

ancients hide
pass
matter melody

between us bridges
between bridges

cross
in mouth

spit
out
moments reeds

body
seams sewn

bile doomed
damned furnace

close
to circle

miss
remembering

reels

loop

real

recording of voices
gone
into water
