Some Poems – Eris and Dionysus

Eris

You touch the edges of my jaw
and I wonder if you could pull me out,
out of the disorder;

out of the haze and lifting
my face to yours –

clarity –

[Go hunting,
Take the heart of some small
something between your teeth]

and there is this delicate
tranquillity in seeing
the jagged edges and crazy fog clear, but
I hope you let go.

Dionysus

My spirit soars,
as the skin flays to nothing
in bliss
it blackens.

I am pulling myself apart
with this Dionysus
while my body disintegrates –
a flaming husk with a single living core
untouched.

Death is imminent,
but for now,
invincible,
I have nothing to fear-

everything to love.
As flesh and bone fall away,
my spirit soars.
