Among the hideous shapes
   you are my favoured
For the wretched silence of your scoliotic spine
   flavoured with our crimson wine:
Blood diamonds
   screaming songs of sirens
   writhing on a desiccated island's edge
Boiled aliveβ€”
   can be distilled into the language of a pledge
I hereby promise to be yours
Foretell you will be mine
