CANNIBAL

Explosive emotions

Burning inside

Luscious narrative

Before my eyes

 

A film about cannibals

An epic apocryphal

Erotic power elemental

Connecting with fire in us all

 

You are a vesper of transformation

Emerging from an inferno of devastation

Transcending gender in its iterations

Unleashing emotional identification

 

I believe in your presence

I resonate with your essence

This is sacred transcendence

Building a faith of resistance

 

Metaphors within interbreed

Conjuring a prophetic creed

Blood drooling from your teeth

Imagining new karmic synergy

 

This film is fierce and spiritual

Humanizing the unnatural

I am sacrilegiously enthralled

I see your beauty—I fear your fall

 

This story is fueled by revelation

Immaculate beauty in lurid gestation

Yearning for collective liberation

Manifesting hope for transgressive salvation
