serpents no longer crown his horns
his limbs…
torn to burn and stir
giving birth to pomegranates for
mortal blood

drunk and sober realities accompanied with
weapons of vines and ivy,
shackle the
cursed witnesses of his

spring obsession brings forth
his arrival
dominating her raging ones;
Rhea’s Mysteries
as Maenads sacrifice to
create legacies based on
the religious right of death

Dionysus! Dionysus! Dionysus!

your offering begins with
troubled souls
lost in darkness that you
created to find them again

free the righteous from
their chains of guilt
tear away shame brought by

your judging time begins
now and
forever shall be
