O MUSES

O MUSES LET ME FIND MY OTHER HALF AND LET THE PRIESTESS TIE OUR LEFT-HAND SLEEVES TOGETHER

AND WHEN THE DEED IS DONE O PRIESTESS CALL FOR ME ANTINOUS AND ALEXANDER

AND LET THE SWORD OF ALEXANDER CUT THE KNOT AND LEAVE US DRIFTING LIKE TWO BASKETS ON A RIVER

AND LET MY LORD ANTIN-OSIRIS CLEAR A PATH BENEATH THE MARBLE ARCH OF DECADENCE AND TERROR

AND WHEN WE REACH THE CITY LIMITS LET US LIE BENEATH A BLUE AND WHITE SILK CANOPY TO HIDE THE SIN FROM HEAVEN

UNTIL THEN LET THE LORD OF HEALING REST HIS HAND UPON ME GRIEVING AND REMIND ME THAT THE CLOTH IS ONLY TEMPORARY.
