Venus and Mercury: Late Night Conversations


Mercury:
There's a woman on the rock behind you
She writes on walls when nobody's looking
She writes on walls for nobody's listening
She travels lightly in every direction
Perhaps you know this lonely creature?

Venus:
Indeed i know her, her loyalty's blinding
My name she honours like a sacred fountain
Her body trembles at the sound of thunder
But eyes stay open, savouring the lightning
Why enquire of this lovely creature?

Mercury:
I think I know her, I feel that she knows me
Strange perception, and not even frightening

Venus:
She is dreaming of this conversation
Let her finish... How are you this evening?

Mercury:
I am restless, yet tired, like a morning

Venus:
Hold my hand, I have missed you gravely

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
