' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' POEM WRITTEN WHILST LISTENING TO CAPTAIN KIRK READ THE BIBLE!


Oh thou
smitest me

with all the wonders
of thy body

and yea
I was truly

smitten

so that
unbidden

it came upon
me that

I wanted to begat
& begat & begat

with the finesse of thy form
I craved thy image

threw down
my rod

which turned into a serpent
intent

upon devouring thee!

Oh lady I so
(urgently)

need to know

thee
in a Biblical way.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
