Dark Star, I seek you in all the endless rooms of the universe. I have entered the maze of chaos and searched the promise of no end and no fulfillment. But I have seen your helmeted head flashing gold from the bloody triumphs and sunsets of the world. I have heard your voice singing lovely songs of desire in the world womb. I remember the artistry of fingers that held the rose in wonder. Your musical flute sounding the hymn of love seeking since the birth in the crashing star nebulae. Singing limbs of muscle and star-foam pursued and pursuing. Radiant Warrior, how long? Beloved God, how long? How long, how long?
