The Star, an incantation



The Star, an incantation.

say it to yourself… it will heal you.


Under such grave light
Driven by spectres of day and night
The icy cave of forgetful dreams yawns
And from it pour nocturnal streams
Sevenfold, from the point of touch
Blues melt and fall away
In unstable currents subterranean neon fields
Here roam the watery horses
Cretan creatures thrown by volcanic tremors
From deep fissures in the ocean floor
Melted from the core of gaseous floes
Octopi and nereids thrown up on the wildest shore
Watch whilst maidens cream the surface
Of  their pearlescent pores with spume
And spindrift drawn from stars…
