Another Step

take a another step,
holding her thorny gift.


Her torchlit-warmth
smolders in your hands,

but do not grasp,

as the graceful curves
of swaying hips,
refuse to concede
to mere mortals’

Satin slips
against silken skin,

as if a dust cloth
was suddenly whipped
from the regal visage
of a marble goddess,
given to earth again.

Hecate grins,
as the curator spins

in the crossroad.
