Plea in Litanies


Give me laurel to where in my crown of thorns
give me sleep
give me breath
give me narcosis
give me visions
give me purple and orange and green
give me epiphanies
give me dogmas to burn
give me ground to test
give me madness
give me holiness
give me freedom
give me ether
give me miasma
give me vapors
give me euthanasia
give me foresight
give me closure
give me blessings
give me ghosts
give me cavalries
give me microbes
give me evolution
give me roses
give me herpes
give me rigor mortis
give me a glance/chance/dance
give me completion
give me unholy matrimony
give me sacred divorce
give the hope of salvation
give me the promise of damnation
give me loyalty
give me treason
receive machines of five more seasons
