MODERN PROMETHEUS

for all the saints
for cockleshells 
riding double-helix
post-partum nuptial
matricide
embodied honorifics 
withdrawn paps
crepe portrait gestures
point toward assignation
marble pulse myopia 
the next step then
the next
men lashed
to timber preen
horariums make bold
diversion's gauntlet
cast to heave
storm-turning negligence
beaker floating gene
consequential loathing
love me, kill him
dire torn from
undertow 
of woman
