Stars aspire to drink nectar from the burnt up bosom of the comets
That fall down and collapse.
Someone still desires to rise up
The brute –
Between my death and your immortality,
Stands the howling beast mimicking God.
It lifts up its claws full of sharp nails.
The cross never fails
Though Lancelot’s sword cuts flesh within as Guinevere’s tresses of golden hair hide her naked breast.
Nails can feel the neutrality of the death knell.
Bats seek shelter
Deep into the crevices of hidden mountains,
Where volcanos dare speak up the language of anger, protest, furore,
Are bastards born only to learn the art of destruction?
Lips cling to lips as the fountain of nectar springs up from the stolen
Womb of the fragile damsel.
The warrior is born out of the whirlwind of the particles of the darkest coffin.
The war must continue within
Till the shameless serpent gets drowned into the stream of love!
The howling beast stands alone
As the bastards March forward
The stone that hangs from muddy craters of torn earth!
Get burnt up by your own fire!
There is still too much warmth within to resist the massacre.
