In Excelsis Deo - A Surrealist Carol For Madrigal Choir To Be Sung While Bathing 2


.
Later revision

Hair of soap
and head of tears
Rinse mine eyes
of Christmas stars

O Bells, the Bells sear me.

Rinse mine eyes
of Christmas stars
Water me hot
and redly rare

O Fey, the Fey stars blear me.

Water me hot
and redly rare
Scald me pinkly
if you dare

O Gay, the Gay sleds slay me.

Is that flesh
floating on the
surface me who
swims or sinks
fraternally?

I know a strange me

with soap for eyes
and suds to see

Eternally yours,

He.

    I am still confused (This was a great poem btw) But I have my own idea on how to write an imagery based A Common Illness. I shall now work on it. (Report) Reply
