Drug me with drugs
Slow acting, sensuous, sweet,
Co-mingle gin and musk,
Hashish and amber,
Let me drink and breathe
And hear slow, devious music

Until aroused
To subtle, languorous moods,
Until I see
Ochre and mazarine and purple
Emit lascivious sounds

Then I shall do
Through dark and gothic ruins,
Dray and golden mists
Down to a forest, green
With an old dream

I shall go naked
And magnolia and oleander
Datura and jasmine,
Whose blossoms will open and vaginally flower
In infinite time, for a relative hour,

Whose white, subminimal flowers
Will caress my breasts
And I shall perform stately,
Phallic arabesques
In the moonlight,
Pale and white
