the wings of a man

finds a nose to nestle

his restless high fire

burning a hunger. 


a goddess of yes

to a seeking worship,

to a searching sacrifice

is this wings of man


and so his wings stand

a breathing statue,

a pulsating corpse 

at the bust of venus. 


no arrow so sweet

shot a ghost journey

to a still butterfly

is this wings of sight. 


"o ye sky and space,

tarry no more again;

today smiles your heart

at this lips of ask."


a flower is an altar

of pretty seeking words.

an altar is a goddess

of a poetry of love


and so a searching wings

takes a purest heart 

on choicest of verses,

faithful a sacrifice 


of eternity offering

to a rich rose of seek;

that she will be juno

of his life and his earth. 


o ye sky and space,

tarry no more again. 

today is aphrodite

and apollo 's marriage.
