La Luna

give me Time La Luna
look everything is gone
    everything is crying
the water has turned cold
a Sacrifice falls between us now La Luna
out of the three of us one is a sacrifice
a cold line is drawn through the sky
too late too late now
one by one all my suns are leaving me
will they ever return to my life
an Eagle flies out of my forehead splitting
    the sky apart
the maddening sound of an unseen Wheel
    can be heard from afar
distant memories
like crabs
appear at sunset
late suns late suns also set
you come into my life with circles of metal
with unseen forces
with dark incomprehensible anguish, you are reborn
as yourself,
is there nothing human in you La Luna
though everything looks possible, everything explicable
somewhere things have been trapped
come back Emperor
let your dark eyes take me in with the night one last time
plait my hair with an ancient key La Luna
shroud my face my wounds
with cloths of black La Luna
prepare me for that pagan festival
like silhouettes gliding past dark walls
like ice flowers waiting for indigo nights
like a lighthouse scanning the restless sea
like a silver pendulum swaying in space
the Hanged Man
a Friar, a Knight
nurturing mandrake with tears...
seeping under a blackened window
    like a poisonous cloud of smoke
        cloaking you
            cloaking La Luna from beginning to end
give me Time La Luna
            a little time
let me hear once more the lyre of Selene
and the Sirens, with their violet songs, from afar
