In Search of Virgins

For sacrifice in the ancient circle

Of mass copulation

Down by the river

In the late evening

As dusk steals the edges

Of prominent objects

With sharp lines

And blunt purposes–

There in the hollow

By the plash of fountains.

The longest day departs

Upon the squeals & cries

Of young maidens

Stretched upon the rocks

Receiving the sun’s farewell.

In dancing flashes

Of flesh on flesh

As a new tribe is born.
