Bed Of Eve - Poem by Joseph Narusiewicz

Share the wild Wolfe of night
She is the ancient face of Venus
Neath the sea of lava she sleeps
Emerge under the lustful moon

Hidden in caves the treasure waits
We are dual nature, vampire
Rage turned into a role model
Bovine formula from the Calvinists

Leather as black as fallen nature
Wrestle with the underground river
Tangled in western jungles
Cement idols of ivory purity

Her eyes are bright with desire
Her new thighs wet with honesty
Fire from the pagan alter burns
Apollo and method have catharsis

Dionysus sings his debauchery
The old empire rises like a lioness
Pleasure seeks eyes of understanding
Tonight she trembles in self knowledge

Eros has filled the hungry stars
Cupid reveals the aplomb of hypocrisy
Candles burn for passionate lovers
We are all at war with ourselves

The bed of Eve fills with flowers
