Lunar Baedeker

A silver Lucifer
serves
cocaine in cornucopia
 
To some somnambulists
of adolescent thighs
draped
in satirical draperies
 
Peris is livery
prepare
Lethe
for posthumous parvenues
 
Delirious Avenues
lit
with the chandelier souls
of infusoria
from Pharoah's tombstones
 
lead
to mercurial doomsdays
Odious oasis
in furrowed phosphorous
 
the eye-white sky-light
white-light district
of lunar lusts
 
Stellectric signs
 
WING SHOWS ON STARWAY
ZODIAC CAROUSEL
 
Cyclones
of ecstatic dust
and ashes whirl
crusaders
from hallucinatory citadels
of shattered glass
into evacuate craters
 
A flock of dreams
browse on Necropolis
 
From the shores
of oval oceans
in the oxidized Orient
 
Onyx-eyed Odalisques
and ornithologists
observe the flight
of Eros obsolete
 
And "Immortality"
mildews
in the museums of the moon
 
NOCTURNAL CYCLOPS
CRYSTAL CONCUBINE
 
Pocked with personification
the fossil virgin of the skies
waxes and wanes
