I wanted images
Of eden

I thought I took them
In the mountains

But no, eden is in
An abyss of you

So let me be
A light defiant

A hearth to the cold
Walls of exposed bone

Your body an eden
Like a gothic lotus

Blooming from
Wrought iron gates

Rusting to a meadow
Of fresh dug graves

I can be abyss defiant
Digging in your eden

A place of solitude
And burning incense

And hookah smoke blown
Through indolent skulls

They’re the dancing dead
Dressed in royal red

Watching me explore
Your sublime eden

It’s been hell to some
But to me it’s a heaven

I am abyss defiant and plot
To explore your uncharted eden
