The Surrender’s Hymn

Om Kali, Kali!
Om Kali, Kali!


Eye am here &
Eye beseech thee

Hoist your sword
& sweep all that presently lies prostrate at your feet

Come, Kali
& take all that is yours

Ev’ry memory
& lucid dream

Ev’ry broken promise
& lustful, meandering stream

Ev’ry dark face
Ev’ry star-lit space

Ev’ry curl
Ev’ry girl

Ev’ry gutless fear
& gallant deed

Ev’ry fair maiden’s flushed bosom
& dram of golden mead

Take it all, Kali
Take all you can carry

The smirk
The walk

The rimes &
Lavender pillow talk

Take ev’rything, Kali
Take ev’rything
Eye thought was me

These big, brown eyes
These square shoulders
Shouldering wayward wings

These hands
These miracles
These monstrous things

And please,
Do not forget the heart

Patiently, it awaits
The cruel caress of your heel

Ah! it quickens as your red tongue draws near

The splatter of blood
The clatter of skulls

Kali, eye am here
& eye surrender


Thus, take ev’rything you want
& ev’rything you need
