Dark Burning Rain and Other Poems I'm Not Afraid of The Dark

The Passions of Man

I am
that all/that Call to Oneness/Thrusting fist
and twisting lips/My Word, my Honor/Calls to my
Reflected Selves/I am/That Man/I am/That
Man has the Shape of Heaven/shafts so Holy piercing round Him/
Holy Holes and Heated Halos/I am/I am/Ramming
Home with
Bones so Cold/
Taking him
the Love to
fold Around Himself
in Times of Doubt/I am Mighty in
the Female/Mighty to the Shape of Birth/The Shapes of
Children Twisting Past/the speed/the pleasure/the speed
and the Passions of Woman has taught me something/the Endurance of Evidence/this Bleeding Rain of Light/the Craving/the
itching for Darkness/the Hunger/the Faces of Ghosts
lost beside Me/aloneā€¦/
Beside Me
He is not,/and the
Passions of Man has taught Me
Nothing/
