“Blood and Gold” – Nexus

The alchemy of life requires we

never know the mystery ~  how quicksilver leaves

our hearts bleeding out ~ stranded

to an inner purpose; a gold-mine of knowing

who I am that bled through you

so I sift and sort my value

in an unruly crises of heartbeats

returned as ever to my heart being.

I recieve this golden cargo

and profit it to prayers wrapped

in silk-smoked garments,

warped in damaged portraits

melting in the fiery fringes.

The gold is molten, simmering

and is my alchemy.
