The desirous believe - NoPoWriMon entry!

The desirous believe

(poor beasts of hope)
that someday a man will find
a drink made of a thousand bodies without borders
and sea stupor between the thighs.
They think someday saliva men
will exhibit their luminescent tongues,
open at last everyone's eyes
and be pure meat.

Long, wide, dazzling man,
caressing eyes,
refuge in a fire without end.
Then man will not be able to move.
His flesh long and wide,
desire satisfied.
He'll lose his eyes
and it will never be a reflection 
of insanity again.
