Song For Ishtar

The moon is a sow
and grunts in my throat
Her great shining shines through me
so the mud of my hollow gleams
and breaks in silver bubbles


She is a sow
and I a pig and a poet


When she opens her white
lips to devour me I bite back
and laughter rocks the moon


In the black of desire
we rock and grunt, grunt and
shine
