prayer

Yesterday I felt a prayer run up my spine and pierce my brain
I felt the snake uncurl from its long rest and open its eyes
shaking its rattle in my cunt and breathe out a long wet hiss

I opened my unblinded snake eye and beheld my Mother
with her naked pulsing nipples pushed out by her long black breasts
her head crowned by the Sun and Moon
her eyes of Dragon’s Blood and Lapis
her hands bent like the claws of vultures
clasping
writhing red and black striped serpents
bringing
both
to my outstretched hands.
