Tomb To Temple,Temple To Tomb

Tulips talk,Helen sobs
Utterances in the night;eucalyptus cry
Sky bursts open w/ stars,stars,stars
utterances in the night,the owlets cannot
hear the she-owlets cry
Deep in the subterranean veins of arti`s
arteries kumar blows his melancholia-mingled
murmuring pipe;utterances in the night
Rain drops slow,sublime;lovers learn to light
each other`s lights
Bubbles in the Champagne never fall,always
rise to wet our dreams and desire with ripe
vines/eucalyptus cries deep in the nigh
Pull me,warm up,sweetsing to sleep me singing
the agesold,ancient,ancient lullabies
Deep in the veins of arti her capillaries
connive to bury & cremate me drowning me
Cruelly in her seashoreless Paradise
