Ampersand by Rael Xavier Bischoff

So what are the Heavens &
where are the darker fortunes?
—when do they happen?

Both suffering & self
are maximized in the moment.

The imports & instances
of self & suffering come
as excitement & frisson—
Heaven & dark fortune
are secret & sudden.

When are we everywhere
but then, there?—
seized & realizing
what we were, are, could become.

All times are hands:
instinct & influence
are fingers designed
to ensnare the fruits of humans.

Beware: writings are snakes prowling within gardens
(while God’s not watching),
readers: naked women.
