Lilac Wine :: a warzone towards haiku

Tell them what the Hand of Glory is, Sister.

Filed under: Text — Tags: — Lilac @ 9:00 am

The Hand of Glory is a medieval construct. It is the dried and pickled hand of a man who has been hanged, lit like a candle to point one to treasure. Five hundred dollars inspires you to re-create this on your serious and mystical girlfriend. My hand receives a wick and a grotesquerie of molten green wax. The treasure I seek is courage.

You light the wick and wax melts around me. I stare, entranced, at our visceral meditation on courage.

You give me pleasure. May I please come, Brother? Thank you. Thank you. It’s burning my skin please blow it out…
