“holy kiss”

Kissed by rain dropsIn a moment of coitusSweet benedictionIs lovely your kissFalling on my lipsRain will wash this sinOr bear witness to thisLet the rain soak usFor the fire to comeMy priest and myLover. [End Page 95]

“son of soil”

I am the son of the soilBlack and unspoiledI look the gods in the eyeFeel beasts in my eyesOn grassy plain feedI walked the sunriseTill the moon riseI was born darkI meet the rain on my feetAs I laugh at thunders“Here I am!”I am the spell cast by God [End Page 96]
