Blessings from a Dark Continent

Bless my hag, my old bag, my utter.Bless my lampy down arms beneath the Moon of Long Nights.Bless blues, midnight and ice.Bless my hissing locks, my treacle trickling teats.Bless all my shushed ups and be sweets.Bless cunt, that frigid cur, curled beneath my feet.Bless furies, my cackling crone, my papery bark.Bless Freudian fingered slips, unbridled must.Bless this darkling orbit.Bless 8, on its side, in my pocket.
