diving into symbols

who drove Lilith to the arms
of unsleep­ing jeal­ousy?
was it Adam, her first,
or was it I AM THAT I AM?

whoso­ever it was gave her also
a Black Moon to watch,
a truly meta­phys­i­cal point
if ever there was one

this celes­tial unicorn’s eye,
a dot between two cres­cents,
was by turns, dan­ger­ous,
both­er­some, and dull

she wore it for a while
on a chain between her breasts
and fol­lowed its throb­bing
to her own lumi­nous center
