C and the horizons of time, II.

Continuing with the series begun on 6/24, here is the second moment of

Aenjelman Dreemz

II. Innonna on Sunset
Wen I kaem tu the wouman in her plezher plase,
All mithen she wer, all Ishtar tu be.
If shame she knu and berth she knu,
The trueth, dizzolvz in the nervee shellz.
Or a siy in the thunderen starree millz.

I spake tu her in her hottee despaer,
"Du yu kno yu ar not the bride* ov the Lor?"
               *utherz say: chozen
And, "Thaze that prae tu yu ar no mor!"
"Yu," she sooth say, "I will yet seddues!"
Braken klae tabelz ar all that remaen
Waer the goddess clasht with the Inneffabel Rime.

Long I waet uppon Babballonz mownd.
The heet, the starz, and the wind a howl.
Come down, and sit in the dust,
               O virgin daughter of Babylon,
               sit on the ground; there is no throne...
               your nakedness shall be uncovered,
               your shame shall be seen.
               Yesheyahhu 47:1,3
