#DailyPrompt: Opening lines

Inspired by Take my Hunger, Inkubus Sukkubus

Max Ernst ~ “Euklides”, 1945Your love is crashing through my veins,

I do not know where, when it will stop,

I don’t want it to stop – I seek the forever,

And you, I know, you seek this blood,

Still human, for a few more days,

Perhaps… And then I will be like you:

A deathless monster.

Image: Max Ernst ~ “Euklides”, 1945

Full lyrics of Take my Hunger (© Inkubus Sukkubus):

Your love is crashing through my veins
Your heat has far eclipsed the day
Let nought but hunger take the pain
We’ve lived as those who’ve lived for fame

Take my hunger
Break my anger
Steal all madness
Slake my thirst

All those who would condemn our love
Know not the beauty in your sun
We’ll live for that which must be done
Release the bird to soar above

So to kick off, The Salt Book of Younger Poets is by no small margin the most exciting new book of poetry I’ve read in months. There’s a real feeling of variety, curiosity, ambition and openness here that was disappointingly lacking in Lumsden’s last anthology Identity Parade; where that felt loose and willing to lower the criteria for admission, The Salt Book maintains an impressively high standard. There are a few writers in here who already read like the finished article, and most are more suggestive and provocative (in the pleasing way) than many of our lauded prize-listers. For the sake of brevity I’ve picked out a handful who I consider worth bringing to your attention.
