Through Ishtar’s Gate

Through Ishtar’s Gate, the streets of Midas beckon us:
We venture in to Babylon Unfallen.

Why not dance upon a lion?

Gold sunlight fills the squares, and the shadows
Are complements, and not for hidden things.

Here, walking is flying; why not dance upon a lion?
Why not worship with mosaics for a day?

Why not become a statue?

And if the mood should take you, why not now become a statue
On a pedestal that seems reserved for you?

See through the glass of marble

O Babylon, we see you through the glass
Of marble, ancient tells, made-over tales

Midas BLOG - 2

O Babylon

But sing Inanna’s scion consecrate
And watch: The myths return through Ishtar’s Gate.

We are watching from the lanterns

Do you dare, do you dare, do you dare?

It will make you dance ’til morning

It’ll make you dance ’til morning, but your feet won’t even feel it:

Not until you stumble home in seven years.

You’ll be ragged as a bean sidhe, but your memories will sustain you,

Won’t they?

Never mind: we’ll visit soon, to drink your tears.
