Bluebeard’s Folly

All women, watching, waiting;

Men, the ancient foe,

Bluebeardian force,

without conscious origin,

failed magician,

archetypal shard,

break the rules of Death,

as Lucifer dared to venture beyond,

to contravene nature.

In them, desire,

loftier than Life and Death,

loneliness washes over him.
