This World is Mired in Lightless Fires by Antic Clay
This world is mired in lightless fires
and they all conspire to be one with you.
The holy rain falls slow, sustained
each drop takes pains to be one with you.
The coiling sun could come undone
because its serpents want to be one with you.
The maroon-rimmed moon sings blue cocoons
which bleed and bloom to be one with you.
The veins that spiral, surge and twine
emerge combined, to be one with you.
In mountain time, when all beasts are blind
you lie supine for all to view.
