Literature
Wiccan Rede: Sabbats
Four times the Major Sabbats mark
in the light and in the dark:
As the old year starts to wane,
the new begins with Samhain.
When flowers blossom through the snow
fair Brighid casts her seed to sow.
When winter yields to warmths return
let the Beltane fires burn.
As the wheel turns to Lamas night
the Horned one shall wane in might.
Four times the Minor Sabbats fall
use the Sun to mark them all:
At Yuletide, with feast and mirth
we celebrate the Horned Ones birth.
Spring Equinox, Eostara's fest,
all newborn creatures will be blessed.
When the Sun has reached its height
celebrate Midsummer’s light.
Offer thanks at second reaping;
Mabon poised for winter's sleeping.

Literature
Wiccan Rede: wood
Nine woods in the Cauldron go,
burn them quick and burn them slow;
Birchwood in the fire goes
to tell us true what Goddess knows.
Oak trees tower great with might,
burn the Oak for God's insight.
Rowan is a tree of power
causing life and magick to flower.
Willows at the waters stand
to help us to the Summerland.
Hawthorn burn to purify
and draw fay folk to your eye.
Hazel tree, the wizened sage,
lends strength that comes with honoured age.
White the flowers of Apple tree,
the holy gift of fecundity.
Grape grows upon the fruitful vine,
sacred gifts of joy and wine.
Fir does mark the evergreen,
to represent immortality seen
Elder be the Lady's tree -
Burn it not or cursed ye'll be.

Literature
Wiccan Rede: Circles, moon phases, and wind
To bind the spell well every time,
let the spell be spake in rhyme.
Cast the circle thrice about,
to keep unwelcome spirits out.
Deosil go by waxing Moon,
sing and dance the invoking Rune.
Widdershins go when the moon doth wane,
embracing knowledge of the arcane.
When the Lady's Moon is new,
kiss thy hand to Her times two.
When the Bow rides in the eve,
turn to what you would achieve.
When the Moon rides at Her peak,
then thy heart's desire seek.
When the Sickle shows Her face
release the old with proper grace.
Heed the North wind's mighty gale,
lock the door and trim the sail.
When the wind hales from the South,
love will kiss thee on the mouth.
When the wind blows from the West,
hearts will find their peace and rest.
When the wind blows from the East,
expect the new and set the feast.

Wiccan Rede: the basics
Bide the Wiccan Rede ye must,
In Perfect Love and Perfect Trust;
Live ye must and let to live,
fairly take and fairly give.
Soft of eye and light of touch,
speak ye little, listen much.
True in love ever be
lest thy love be false to thee.
With the fool no season spend,
nor be counted as his friend.
If you have and hold a need,
harken not to others greed.
Heed ye flower, bush, and tree,
and by the Lady Blessed be.
Greet the Days and greet the Nights
with joy and thanks for all delights.
Sing the seasons all around
til wondrous awe and love abound.
Where the rippling waters flow
cast a stone and truth ye'll know.
When misfortune is enow,
wear the blue star on thy brow.
Mind the Threefold Law ye should,
three times bad and three times good.
These lesson well, thou must know
ye only reap what ye doth sow.
Follow this with mind and art,
bright the cheeks and warm the heart.
Merry meet and merry part.
Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill – An it harm none, do what thou wilt.

Literature
I wouldn't want to be xrys bestfriend
I’m standing by the roots of the elderwood hill; Giggling, as pomegranate juice pools 'round my ankles, fettering me
in place as misgendered beeswax words are gagged down my throat and up my nose-- Caulking shut my ears.
Brazing tear ducts with bloody solder and wood tar, anointing me in cedar rust. Till numb, hollowed;
With lungs rent from my body-- To be displayed in canopic jars. And a stomach cut
open, adorned with jackals drunk on formaldehyde salts; Filled with rocks
and unto the river cast. My body, flotsam, crosses
the northeastern border as they pray
lily and juniper berry
epithets.
And though my own inertia
may bar me the Summerland forevermore;
I would rather die unknowing-- Shrouded in darkness,
drowning in chaos primeval-- Then live as the doll
you wish me to be. By my will
so mote it be.
I hope this hurts, I hope
it fucks you up. Three times
three times three. Blessed be.

Growing up
When I was born I starved myself for a whole
of four months-- Whether in resignation
of my worth or as an act of defiance,
I will never know. I don’t remember
why we came to resent each other.
When I was one I was dropped from the arms of my mother
to the arms of a child
to the carpeted floor
of a photography studio.
Everyone I love has amassed skill in letting me fall;
Though they have yet
to surpass me.
When I was two I was given a sister
to whom everything I am
was devoted, to me she
was a pulsar keeping
rhythm and to her I
was nebulous; A
remnant to
irradiate
into brilliance.
When I was three I mourned my great grandmother,
the core of our family. She freely gave of herself
so ardently-- She must have felt the iron, building up
heavy on her heart. I hate that I cannot remember.
When I was four I sat
in the far corners of bars
alone; Finding pictures of stars
and summerland in the kaleidoscopes
of neon reflecting in raindrops.
When I was five I dreamed
of sisters trapped and d

Literature
If you ever were to hurt me,
Xe would molt ximself of all morality;
For if I was the cost to be paid, if my pain
paved xyrs path to peace in the Summerland,
xe would spit in god's face and set ximself ablaze.
Xe would skirt boundaries of time and place--
For why does it matter what custom dictates proper
in a realm that commodifies suffering,
you failed to offer me due process-- Why should you deserve better?
Xe would remake ximself into a weapon;
Judge, jury, and executioner. Xe
would not rest until all of me was appeased.
But if you ever were to hurt xim; xe would let you.
To all things there is order.

The first poem I ever wrote... :iconxandra-7x13t3:xandra-7x13t3 1 0
Literature
The Nature of Suicide
Ever they sing about all they don’t know-- “Suicide
is a permanent solution to a temporary problem~!”
Do they not understand permanence?
Or do they honestly believe
that we’re looking for
resolution?  
“Think of your family,”
they wail, and I do. I think
of all the times I begged for aid,
and all the times they denied me--
Deemed their idea of me more
important than my reality.
This isn’t a feeling; It’s a fault plane-- Strain
slowly shearing my sanity, eroding my perception
and compressing me; Isolating
my thoughts from my sense of self
till the stress proves too much,
and I fracture.
My end feels so inevitable;
Like my every salvation is for naught
but to draw out our suffering. Every breath an agony,
every moment an opiate-- Numbing you to the neurons screaming
for you to stop walking on a broken limb. Something's going to have to give,
if it won’t be you-- It will have to be me.
Ever they sing about all they don’t kno

ace of pentacles
I am sick, fractured. Cowled in the shadows
cast by the shards of my sanity,
bewitched by the stillness of
my heart 'tween beats.
So overwhelmed by my own
fragility, that I never
thought to ask
Why I felt like a lost boy exiled from Neverland, and yet never
interested in dates nor stolen kisses. All I knew
was what I wasn’t-- All I thought
that left was broken.
Until I found a tarot deck;
The arcane tools soothing something
I had forsaken. I overturn the top card
and the embossed image of a single pentagram
imprints itself into my fingertips, I feel I am coming home.
I’ve developed a love for playing cards--
Particularly aces and fools, yet suit still confounds;
For neither heart nor spade encapsulates. I am neither,
yet I am both-- Something new. I build myself in diamonds.
