out of the cement
the plaster
come unholy diamonds.
these slate men pointing fingers
at priestesses goddesses hookers in silver.
water pools from the salivating mouths
of a thousand saviors with coal-like hands
given by these loincloths of silk and pearl
above caverns corroded by greed and
divine intentions.
