Walpurgis Night

It’s Walpurgis night
see the fires burn bright
hear the crackle and calling of skin.
The drumbeats will thrum
and your pelvises hum
while that calling, it reaches within.
A dozen hearts pound
coming up from the ground
while the forest sways in the wind.
The season has warmed
now that you have performed
roll aside to let the summer in.
