Paint me as a dead soul
With a halo of black joy
Medusa in a mirror
Etched out in acid

The flesh, the image, the reflection
One who dwells in scarlet darkness
Like animals in palaces
Drawing blood
The flesh, the image, the reflection

Let's complete the illusion
Paint me as you see me
From memory or history
In a fever or a frenzy

Paint your lucid dreams and visions
In a chamber of nightmares
In a temple of locusts
So violent, vile and vivid

May the colours make you fearful
Blind and hypnotizing
In our subterranean heaven
Paint my cunt with dragonflies
My eyes as bright as diamonds

My heart open like an ulcer
Or a sacred crimson rose
Bathed in blood
Or drowning in my bed

With the fragrance from the flowers
In the gardens of the dead
Paint ghostly foxes, cats and camels
A red dog and a black dog

Paint a putrid sunset
In verdigris and violet
Ochre, amber, mauve
Four monks
Carrying a goat
Over the snows

To nowhere
And paint the shades
That come with evening
Peacock angels
Dream of leaving

Paint me as you see me
Paint me as I see me
Paint me as a dead soul
