Small influences

Sweet Summer, 1912, John William Waterhouse 

Drawn to dark part of the garden
praying the Merlin Tarot
to bring a transformation
I disappear under the water spell…

Parts, defragmented
dancing in swirl
seduce the past
hell out of me

deep ~ deeper ~ …

the creature has a gun,
we talk:
“Where has you been
the last year?
The source of your
nourishment –
a dreadful kiss?!”

Oh, enough, not a plague…
the penny would cover
the bloody expenses…

I levitate…
