Coronation For The Crimson Emperor

(for Mason)

Good morning—good morning!—

My sunshine daydream

You, my love, this morning you

Were—there, next to me—

Blooming, bloomed!

Out indeed

Between us—

Your pale skin and body

—quiet next to me in hum—

Blooming like a deep red rose

—this and you so sudden in

Morning, in the dawn!

You deeper still you, my

Cherry-blood mouthful

Red—you, my bold

Bolder man maroon

Deepest maroon

Red!—you!

Flicker fire fire

Engine red

Across me

In passion

Passing here

Between us,

Passion past

Across your skin—

You! Your body!

—so red—

The deepest of dawn—

Then, here beside

You red you within you

With these perfect pools

Of such pale purple

That swell and the silence

Somehow that passes between

The silence and tender between

Us—I can finally see—

There, here in your deep red’s

Night night-est light night

I can see the how and the

Delicate of that blue of me.

You always seem to yearn

To be lost—consumed—

Within!—with my every

Touch softest touched with

My eyes—my glance

—Press’d deep and so

My eyes the pale of sky-blue

That—there within those of mine

—Twin skies, their glinted sighs—

You my ripe reddest man, love true

Pay in love back to me my gifted

Desire as blue within blue.

You pay with that weight of your

Warm and red and smile and red

—and body and red—

—and so long years—and red!

Every time I feel your rogue glance

And too your red candle candescent

So iron-hot Rogue red

R o y a l R e d Emperor.

Here, in this quiet of morning

Please, come stay yet

To yet rule this the

Vast empires of my azure—

Oceans of love, and

Oceans of air

Oceans within with me—you

Emperor Red of Me Deepest Me

Deep Deeper Space,

Deeper Blue, Bluer

Blue so infinite in within you.
