For Amun


claim me from

abandoned temples and unsacred rites

anoint my body with the wine of the dead

lay me within golden pyramids to become the journeying dust

dissolved into sand; swept into sky

dissolve my existence


transform me beneath the sun’s inverse light

golden Amun-Ra

subsume me into your kingdom

unmoving and unseeing acolyte of the god


speak to me of life anew

fertile honeyed in your embrace

anoint my soul through its restless recreation

revelation; rebirth

vision of the rising sun
