OPIUM FOR OPHELIA

Ophelia, bitch-goddess, girl-
bastard between moon and mountain-
milked flowers, white and silver sings
in the slivers of your hair.

Ophelia, your full-pomegranate
breasts, plush, lush-
grown on the vines
my fingers vein.

Ophelia, dark water plague
drips you to the ruined
river, to my lap of leaden loins.

Ophelia, come uncorseted,
uncostumed in woman-
worries, unvesseled, rendering
yourself unraveled.

Ophelia, my fare, my sweet-
meet, simpering, slipping
through my face-cracks, bleeding
through my teeth, my ancient avarice.

Ophelia, froth at my feet, naked
now your nape, burst the rubies
clotted within your fruits, and I'll pass
my wicked through your weeping wounds.
