Bruno Nicolai “La coda dello scorpione – Sequence 1”
She is my favorite gown.
A splendent beam through the caliginous night
I wear her on my longing flesh
This Velveteen Charm of mine.
Draped across my souls secret skin
As she dances like feathers in the zephyr of Fall.
Every tall stem of grass in my hearts garden.
With the most delicate of hands.
The accoutre of my innermost dust
Kissing each grain with her fancy.
She is my nourishment.
A thousand banquets for all ten of my senses
Possessing through the most succulent dressing
I am gluttonous for her tang
The very taste of her tears as they weave through mine
She is my Souls twin light.
Two halves of a dusted tablet
Estranged for aeons
Fused together like the bones of an infant
Architect of my hope
I bestow to her gladly
And by the grace of the highest heavens
I love her madly.
Richard Charles Stevens
Keeper of The Crimson Quill
