Rafting holy forever’s white-flats.
Eternity haggling the damned, preaching the damned,
Nailing the damned still higher to their crucifix.

In lost sunlit eve,
As love bade farewell Mr. Brown,
To creatures in flight,
The foremen suckle breast.
Breast hallucinated on almighty currency,
Breast taking stock,
Breast unholy! – Of hallowed years 1983, 1874, 1790.
And since yesterday more years lost in sandy time.

Lo – then at insistent wrecked morality,
Lies misogyny headhuntin’ victims in diamond-coated glee.
So sugar me up, send me honey right to the diamonds and surely leering death is kind.
So say goodbye.
Then hop-slap-splash, love the ivory tower.

And then psychosis,
And there was a whimper,
And there she lay ruined.
Sweet earth of flowers destroyed.

It’s natural. Natural to kiss the rubies, the towers, forget oneself, to let the past rest yesterday in peace.

Spent yesterday in eternity haggling the damned, preaching the damned, nailing the damned still higher to their crucifix.

Indeed, you are gifted by the Muses, inherent genius and bountifully auspicious good writing karma well earned in some distant past lives aeons ago, shrouded in mysteries.
I am very alarmed Oisin, that you penned in your biography here, that you will we leaving Author's Den, due to some discouragements in life perhaps, but stated as not being able to pay the fee.

I hope you had a lovely Easter. I am sorry I am not being as supportive as I should be. In fact it may be some time before you may hear from me. Hopefully one day I may return to AD. At the moment I am still searching for peace and quiet so essential to writing. Your friend Victor

Oisin,
"Lo – then at insistent wrecked morality,
Lies misogyny headhuntin’ victims in diamond-coated glee.
So sugar me up, send me honey right to the diamonds and surely leering death is kind.
So say goodbye.
Then hop-slap-splash, love the ivory tower
You always leave me in awe the words and flow of entwining verses...
