Dudley Randall (1914 – 2000)
god of frenzy and release, of trance and visions,
hail to the manifestations of your might,
thanks for admitting me to your ritual.
Inspirer of divine speech:
da da da da da da da da da:
releaser of subterranean energies:
a man lies snoring on the sofa;
giver of fierce grace:
a girl staggers among chairs, reels against the wall;
endower with new sensations and powers:
a man vomits on the rug – an aromatic painting,
and a girl, a lovely creature,
wets her panties.
god of frenzy and release, of trance and visions.
I see them recede,
handsome men, beautiful women,
brains clever and bright, spirits gay and daring,
see eyes turn glassy, tongues grow thick,
limbs tremble and shake,
caught in your divine power,
carried away on the stream of your might,
