Axis II


I came upon a wedding that old families had contrived;

Bethlehem the bridegroom,

Babylon the bride.

Great babylon was naked, oh she stood there trembling for me,

And bethlehem inflamed us both

Like the shy one at some orgy.

And when we fell together all our flesh was like a veil

That i had to draw aside to see

The serpent eat its tail.
