my man has agreed to carve a thick piece of flesh (above muscle layer) from somewhere on his body so I can eat it
Crawl into my open wounds
And il show you all your dreams….
“Search, and you’ll find diamonds in my rosegarden”.
Oh,how neat you dance between the ancient trees
“…Dance beloved one” I laugh in your dreams.
Crawl into my open hand, and i’ll clench it…
Far beneath your well of thoughts
you swim in my wounds….
I embrace you with my poisoned blood
and drag you to your bed of Thorns.
Sadly - Dorothy Lathrop
"The magic of beasts is sympathetic magic, fetiche magic, and death magic, but it is also sensual magic. It is the feel of the Saturn finger dipped in warm blood, of softest fur on barest skin, of sharpest tooth and talon biting in, of a raw heart on the tongue, and the scent of decay deep in the lungs. It is the rendered fat of a flying ointment like smooth silk across the brow, and it is the tactile, dirty, grounding sorcery of the here and now. It is an amoral, carnal, fleshly, and sensory feast of visceral magic combining the sacred and the profane."
Excerpts of ‘The Mysteries of Beast, Blood and Bone’ from Serpent Songs
"In order to possess “The Wonder-working Serpent,” it is necessary, in the words of the Grimoire, “to buy an egg without haggling,” which (by the way) indicates the class of person for and by whom the book was written. This egg is to be buried in a cemetery at midnight, and every morning at sunrise it must be watered with brandy. On the ninth day a spirit appears, and demands your purpose. You reply “I am watering my plant.” This occurs on three successive days; at the midnight following the egg is dug up, and found to contain a serpent, with a cock’s head. This amiable animal answers to the name of Ambrosiel. Carry it in your bosom, and your suit inevitably prospers."
Aleister Crowley, Moonchild
