Munch-Petersen, Gustaf moon behind clouds

moon behind clouds

find your god,
or you can't live -!
the gods are waiting
motionless inflexible -
the black god
of the eagle is standing,
his dark, closed face turned away,
waiting -

the red god of the snake,
coiling with locked lips,
ready, ready -
the green god
of the grass with
silent blades,
awake, awake -
the unseen god,
watching for the blood to walk,
claiming, claiming -
find your god -,
or you can't live -!

you may worship the pale breed
of the selves -,
pace, begging, towards the smiling
woman o f death -
- the gods
are waiting,
waiting -!
