…In Love

Artemis on Dr John Dunn. …In Love

An Artemis of breasts aplenty,

Mother Earth, nourish us all.

The serpent in you tempts me

To pull on your bull-dugs and drain to empty,

Then bite the fruit that Eve gave to me,

That I might fall…

Eros Debased

Isis on Dr John Dunn.

"I am all that has been and is and shall be; and no mortal has ever lifted my garment."

Your soul remained as still as Isis
Whilst my passion was brought to crisis.
Pity me goddess, forgive.

For as long as there’s a veil to lift,
Debased adoration is my only gift
And Eros will live.

The great gyre on Dr John Dunn.

No matter how infinitesimal,
The great cosmic wheel of time
Wobbled a little
When our eyes met.

And now… a gentle breeze ripples the veil of Sais
Each time I look back with regret.

Cave on Dr John Dunn.

Your soul will never be known entirely;
But for Eros, you would never be known at all.
All I can hope is to enter
And paint my dreams on your wall.

Terror Antiquus by L.Bakst on Dr John Dunn. Terror Antiquus by L.Bakst (1908)

Ananke, Ananke,
Who are you?

I am peace,

Ananke, Ananke,
Who are you?

I am Eve,
Earth Mother,
The stillness of Isis
Under the veil.

Ananke, Ananke,
Who are you?

I am the dark waters,
The deep untroubled waters.

Ananke, Ananke,
Who are you?

I am the glint in the eye
Of the first knowing glance,
The first captivating glance.

Ananke, Ananke,
Who are you?

Destruction fatale, I am she.

Ananke, Ananke,
…You are entropic death.
