Renowned Peruvian composer Javier Jimmy Lopez, has decided to use one of my poems 'Incubus' in a 13 minute piece he is commissioning for the Tampere Biennale which will take place in Finland next year. I'm honoured and over the moon that he finds my work good enough to work with, he has a very impressive resume. check him out on these links.

Incubus


 


Cast from heaven, amongst the


fallen am I


Wings clipped, unable to fly.


A demon cursed  


in lust and arrogance well versed


 


So ‘neath gibbous moon as substance


that can be called shadow.


I hunt the scent of innocence.


A loathsome lothario dancing on the wind


delivering desire to those yet to be sinned.


 


Calling on you in your sleep


expect not foreplay, nor kindness,


nor kissing, or anything deep.


Just a hint of pleasure


and pain to make you weep.


 


From a dead skin mask


I’ll watch with hemlock eyes,


enduring the rapture of  alluring thighs


…for a little while at least…


until libidinous in the extreme


ready to join in toxic waltz


cometh the beast.


 


I’ll enter and take dominion over you


mouldering, mephitic breath hardens


thrusting deep in your mind


nightmares pumping as you


become one with my kind.


 


Palpitating breast heaves as


Hells inferno grips your soul


and your body looses control


throbbing with licentious greed


accepting the demon seed.


 


Withdrawn gasping for breath


I’ll leave you disturbed


Until you wake, as if from death


haunting memories will soon to fade


of the night of love with  a shade.


But do ye well, not to dismiss it


as nothing more than a bad dream


everything is not as it may seem


 


For after nine months your womb


junket filled,


will give…


and my hideous progeny


be spilled


your nightmare… fulfilled.

Needless to say THAT'S been accomplished by the Beast, however we NOW know that the 'hideous progeny' has been recognized for what it is..thus, we, the re-awakened ,shall take dominion..
I'm saving this one..
Stupendous piece,

The world of universal deceit belongs to the incubus and his ilk. The lonely truth-teller will encounter betrayal from every false heart it encounters on life's journey. Aside from this weighty dismay in humanity, Incubus is an accomplished poem, like Dennis Wheatley turned poet. Cheers, kenny
