toting our higher selves
into the lower depths
we conjoining embark
on our towering descent

into fear
into courage
into immorality
into self-restraint

into sublime debauchery
rationally understood
willingly accepted

we chart our catharsis
by the glow of controlled
chaos in luminous darkness

into contradictions
into paradoxes
into pleasure
into pain

into a cleansing reign of terror
which permits our full emptying
in a feast of insatiable exploration

into decay
into ripening
into nothingness
into vital substance

into one another
rent asunder
