Looking sidelong down rain shadows, looking unnatural
in ungainly stance, odd to it all, lost in thrall, held to

phased enchantment, bereft, innovation from ovation,
unique to character, phases of masques alter inference.

Original alphabet contained the zodiac skeleton?

that was later, before was the foetus, a white rabbit

in paradise, survived, donít know how, because it was a hare,
Bodecea of the red hair, scalp eagle breasts wing her sonís head,

Lord of the dead, the Flying Dutchman, lilly on waters.

Ebony in silver rings, the absent moon in memory entrancing

threshold chamber of dream space on a dice roll, again the call,
the toll, ungainly & all, sidelong down shadowy rain:
phases of alter inference described by masques, assume a stance,

yet soar exalted dove, out of sight, out of sky, out of light..

"Mascara grega, magia, que ť retorta de alquimista"... threshold chamber of dream rolled between fingers into beads of darkness and light for necklaces to Gods... wearing human masks for a while. (Will write you soon)
