now comes my memory… i am villainy.
an incarnate carnal. a centipede.
legs all stray to paths that lead
to brains that hang and limbs that bleed.

now the waves rush over me,
this human blood, this reddened sea.
a foam, a gloaming heresy,
a blasphemy to my enemy.

enraged, i take up smoking wings.
i soar to pour my sufferings,
my offerings, sincere i bring
curses, rehearsed, to loudly sing.
