Cosmic wheel of time Time

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.

Isis on Dr John Dunn. Eros Debased

"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.

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…

Nightmare on Dr John Dunn. Chaos brought to order

Nightmare, Helen Frankenthaler, 1989

Imagine not having met you;

The nightmare would have raged on,

Crying into the night, 

Blind fear as the idols advanced towards me.

Keep them away from me, those children of Ananke.

As it was I came to consciousness,

I awoke to your warm embrace.

New life,

Chaos brought to order

Demons gone, or held at bay for now.
