Note: Thanateros (Thanatos and Eros combined) is synonymous with Pan.

Death affirms and is the term of life;
flesh and firmness, egg and sperm, the means.
Breath interred within a Word and light,
deftly perched in permanent in-between:
born to discontinuous distraction,
forced through a contemptuous nadir;
but in a moment, all’s destroyed,
and in the beauty of the void,
a helix and a hollow core appear.

Baphomet the emblem of Its power,
sacrament the reverence revealing
devilment to Wisdom yet unflowered,
absent comprehension of Its meaning.
Pan personifies the All unbounded,
flouts the blind conceptions of the seeing:
Hermes the unmaskèd death,
Aphrodite’s basking cleft,
the androgyne transcends within its being.

O – not called “the little death” in jest,
Gnosis vaunted in the ebb of Lust,
though is Not, the know’r of Life and Death:
know that All It Is is what thou Wast,
Its continuity the end thou seekest
in contemplation, sex, and wist for death:
Thanatos, eternal sleep,
Eros, infinitely deep,
whose embrace Generation manifests.
