When I
and stallion
blend
the grass gets cropped.
Unable to satisfy
their diminuated lust
the allegoric flesh
learns the thrill of return.

Quotes[edit]

The Creation Edda (1970)[edit]

  • On the ice flow they grip,
    cut, twist, break open seeds
    throwing out the white salt,
    revive volcanic dreams:
    unable to satisfy
    their diminuated lust
    the allegoric flesh
    learns the thrill of return.

Control: A translation (1974)[edit]

  • When God comes at me
    do I bow the stallion's legs
    or meet him with flared nostrils?
  • When Man comes at me
    do I rein in the stallion,
    or let him meet the hooves?
  • When Woman comes at me
    do I let her take the bridle,
    or turn away the head?
  • When I
    and stallion
    blend
    the grass gets cropped.

Jig of Life (1985)[edit]

Can't you see where memories are kept bright?
Tripping on the water like a laughing girl.
Time in her eyes is spawning past life,
One with the ocean and the woman unfurled,
Holding all the love that waits for you here.
  • Can't you see where memories are kept bright?
    Tripping on the water like a laughing girl.
    Time in her eyes is spawning past life,
    One with the ocean and the woman unfurled,
    Holding all the love that waits for you here.

    Catch us now for I am your future.
    A kiss on the wind and we'll make the land.
    Come over here to where When lingers,
    Waiting in this empty world,
    Waiting for Then, when the lifespray cools.
    For Now does ride in on the curl of the wave,
    And you will dance with me in the sunlit pools.
    We are of the going water and the gone.
    We are of water in the holy land of water
    And all that's to come runs in
    With the thrust on the strand.
