Desire doesnít stop
at bliss: give it what
it wants, it will insist
that all it wants is this

new bliss. Give it what
its eager lust unpeels,
for all it wants is this
illicit dream fulfilled.

Its eager lust unpeels
a deeper, darker layerís
illicit dream. Fulfilled,
its sated cravings stir

a deeper, darker layer:
the naked core exposed.
Its sated cravings stir
fresh inventions, wake

the naked core. Exposed,
desire doesnít stop.
Fresh inventions wake.
It wants. It will insist.
