FOR MY LOVE AT THE EDGE OF THE WORLD

My Favorite Monster by Mother Dwarf Smith

FOR MY LOVE AT THE EDGE OF THE WORLD

Imagine a tarot card picturing an atomic explosion
as powerful and nostalgic as a Coke logo
the mandalic repetition of anachronistic mythologies
omens bloom, snakes hang limp and laced in the prickers of glorious flowers
like robbers hovering over lovers in the night

I’m aplomb in wonder under sunk sun on a rooftop in Africa
Wide wing terradactyl stork pulls himself big o’er my head,
bird calls like static discharge, prehistoric ions in the ear
stork hurries home to roost mosque roof
he nests the purpling sky
tucks wing in stick,
leg up, lid eye

In the mosque, strangers on stairwells, steps in moiré dimensionality
old city womb rooms, pin light window shadows huddle and elongate
in yellow lit private liquid mystery of foreign habits
what is the gestalt of the is that they be?

At the top of the end of the world,
Everything beckons and is remembered
I swoon my crotch through Japanese silk,
groan for cum puddles, fingers musked in want for yours
I be broken flower in the palm of your ham hand
You’re King Kong Gohonzon and I’m your crooked lady

Lady
