words await you under untilled earth
until you loose your hoe and sweat drops in.
Tumescent gardens labor under hand.
You've left your mind, since touch is mute.
The Word's what dirt engenders. Always was.
But Christ, it felt so good,
you say, to have my fingers in. She's on
my mind. Is it a sin to dampen her?
To taste her soiled skin? Open up
Persephone! Your cries of "Joy!" still end.
Pain would last if death were long. (The trees
will come. Conceive the apple's juice's drip.)
Tongue the lip. The eve of death is here.
(The fuck's pronounced.)
-Is this the taste of fear?
