Abaddon’s Muse
by Marge Simon

It begins like a peyote dream,
a landscape of Artaud’s desert where
rocks form anthropomophic visions
that change in passing shadows
and sun-shade astral kings replenish
their inborn mortal fire, reintegrate
an animistic era with a future present
which seems as real as the scalding sand
beneath your bare feet in this infertile wilderness.
For nothing can change without making contact.
Distant music beckons you to follow.
In the bed of a dead ocean the Earth Mother dances,
her transparent form oscillates in heat waves
to a reggae euphony; she is Abaddon’s muse,
a skeletal Venus through burning vapors.
You are in an intense dream of images,
where each metamorphosis of form
is attuned to a transmutable mirage
where you can span the abyss of oblivion
from which there is no escape.
