Set ablaze the flask with a dying thirst

Set ablaze the flask with a dying thirst

(Translated from a sonnet in French available here or here)

Do you see it sink the lake of desires

Filled with my honey coloured ambrosia?

The magic is sealed in pact of pleasures

Castle in the Sky remains fantasy (home of fantasy)

 

From tangled bodies a sole thread now seize

Bypassing the gall of the frenzied hordes

The heart is now cracked from sought elixirs

To greet the altar die of heresy

 

Tell me tales of flirts fine tips recited

I will reign silent disdaining clamours

The beads that are thrown to the pigs cited

 

This burdensome task weft of thousand hours

Facing scarcity silence throbbing nerves

Set ablaze the flask with a dying thirst
