Adam’s Flesh Was The Serpent’s Too
pound809

The Daughters of Beulah follow sleepers in all their Dreams creating Spaces lest they fall into Eternal Death"
 1
                                                William Blake
 2
 
 
When daughters of dawn
 3
Made Beulah’s holy shores
 4
In wombs of his undulating skin,
 5
 
 
Within these folds of undulating flesh,
 6
A curious mansion began its ascent
 7
Overcoming swells of static dawn—
 8
 
 
Allowing sweet love to surface again,
 9
Sweet sweet love!— on moon-coated campuses
 10
Reamed with honeyed forms!
 11
 
 
Yes Adam’s flesh was the serpent’s too,
 12
Bruising our heel as we bruised his head,
 13
Cultivating webs of summer in his folds
 14
          
 15
    —Incubating worlds of delight!
