Moonlit Feast 

sweet cabbage tree
have mercy on me
for in this moonlit hour
I devour your pith heart
share your secrets with Morepork
and cast your husk skin
to the black eel 

sweet black eel 
have pity on me
for in this torch-lit hour
I devour your soft flesh
share you between three
and cast your siliva skin
to the cabbage tree 
wavered moonlight,
at my feet
sandstone and lichen
above my head
ponga frond and epiphyte 

sweet creek take
hold of me, naked
for in this deathly hour partake
of my erotic warmth
let me hunger emmersed
in your icy waters
sweet pith spoken
sweet flesh broken
