Katabasis

from Shibboleth by Ophiuchi

/

lyrics

Long is the way
is the backwoods trail
through a myth
through a verse
through intestines
less a man
more a beast
with pots of flesh
and dreams of dreams
but the lungs,
but the lungs with the air
blew the husks to the birds.
a path between the paths
coiled, umbilicus.

into

the grime
and the filth
and the lice
in their beds
to the worm
with a mouth
in the dirt

down into

the troughs
with their fucking snouts
surely the Lord
is in this house.

sweat of the meat
for a hole in the ground
and the scraps off a feast

i should not have come here
