Anointing the Guardian (2001)
Fire and cold and starless dark: my strange ordeal, my soul’s Dark Night,
oh, terrible, terrible!
Yet I endure. And I survive, and on me, naked,
scars ride serpent on my skin
A night flower blossoms like a star of courage…..
Raise me up, o power of Earth; foment green anarchy
Soul of my soul, be my witness, anoint me with the Gorgon mask
Let nothing unclean enter this space!
For I, and Love, and Life, stand fast.
