We slide forth dripping with
from the Goddess’s womb,
Caterwauling, purple with need,
we seek Her benediction,
Her calming minstrations-balm
for our naked first thrust
into a blue and eerie world,
instinct our promise to the comfort
of Her flesh, to the succor given
by her pale breast-milk, warm
as our innocence.
