Try fostering the emptiness of loneliness,
As the heart skips a beat;
And you are drawn towards death.
Be still like silent waters.
As the spirit descends upon you;
While you are voiceless like a dead wind,
Contemplate the suicide of saints.
And dress your wounds with barbed wire;
Penetrates your loneliness with obsolescence,
Unfurl for me the deepest
Desire dwelling within you.
Governance and power
Bestowed for an hour;
Before the temple walls
Catch fire, and burn.
