1. Why they hang about you like wisteria or hydrangea. Petalled people looking for the sun.
2. Why they bow down prostrate at your golden feet. Why they blind their oracle and eat their women.
3. Why they bury themselves deep within your womb where it is quiet, dark, and volatile.
4. Why they tremble at your throne, lick your lightening and reel.
5. Why they climb your geometry to impale themselves on its tetrahedral point.
6. Why they hold the boulder of your eye after the earthquake, build nests among your thighs.
7. Why they follow you like a light. Why you stand so far from the breaking shore.
