snake unwinding (from Uttering Her Name)

by Gabriel Rosenstock

Original Language Irish & English

Dar Óma
snake unwinding
from a lightning-blasted tree
I've spotted You
why should I flee?
I am already deep in Your eyes
take all of me
let me assist You
here's my head firmly in Your jaws
do not use Your fangs
to stun me
let me live
this death in You now
inch by slow inch
