Confessions of Malta Robert I ask you to slowly drown yourself in this holy water and leave the way you’ve always wanted to come the blackberries they hatch like ghastly windows and I don’t want the same film to reach over your face the church pedestals lit up and then you lit up the matches and a deer prayed to its own leg and yesterday a prophet fucked you in your sleep and I don’t know where birth belongs but this is not a cycle Robert there is something pure about bleeding but not death.
