(To E--)

I sat down in the shower

To get clean, praying last night

And passion waves turn’d on wave

Flowed over me

I called out to my Patroness

I called out to Venus

My great Goddess

I called out to Aphrodite

And saw visions of our bodies

Passion pressed


My suspicions confirmed


Last time I checked the oracles

Ancient runes, divine tarot

Signs pointed to “yes”

Each time I asked the 8-ball

Every single time,

Every single ball,

Never was my question answered “No.”


And the Goddess washes me

In her love, that great ocean,

And the Goddess purifies me

Readies me to be

A love with you,

A life with you

To meld together

Refract like prisms

Parallel in beauty harmony
