untitled poem

most mysterious of mysterious frames
in the darkest pit of all
yearning for extinction's comfort


a petal looks in warm yellow

a virgin smiles with hateless lips

a wrinkled hand trembles as if to love

the pit glows in a natural embrace

......and in a moment it is dark again

or Light!

Mozart and Osiris
