Elemental lights (Inspiration, smoked and fleeting)
swim out of the orchidaceous lobes
housed in Buddha's bowl of prayers
mirroring blessed serpents who still offer supplication from earth, sea, sands
on dragged bellies,
these sad legless children.
God loved them in their first forms in the great garden then hated them. God robbed them blind down their descendants and quickly after forgot to restore them, even though their ancestral crime was bred in possession by the willful Jinn. Still they are tormented, still they crawl intensely
like ecstasy is their miracle to disseminate with abandoned skins and somatic immortality remains only in retribution
