did your ritual

why, we did your ritual backward
in park darkness, fled the satanic beat
, melted into the murmur backward, rustling
of giants over that way, helping out w our
terror, it shudders quietly between us
like a levitating balloon glass waiting
for our satanic spit.

stupid and dark
cackling inside
we rewind walk
thru murmuring black foliage
as black molten gleaming wax in the basin dragged toward flame
