The altar

i looked to the east
and saw lucifer’s light
the black candle
holds the flame
of his left handed might

satan’s spirit is well within
the inverted cross
the pentagram
and the infinite coil
of the serpent’s skin

the demon of thought
and hidden wisdom
has given the key
and decree
to the infernal kingdom

Dead leaves and rain

i can hear the autumnal call
my life and world are waning
the seasonal curse
bestows dead leaves and rain

the fruits that have fallen
[bruised and bitten]
are decaying
much like my spirit

the bones from this exhausted body
are all that will remain
then i will become
the blood of the earth
