We conjure entities from gates of hell;
And knowing all their names impose our will,
Binding those spirits with essential night
To glean the mysteries of eldritch dark
That warp the weave of time and space and earth.”

He explains his poem’s genesis:

“As for the genesis of the poem . . . like a lot of my work, most of this poem came to me ‘received,’ so I’m not really sure about its origins. But at the time of its composition, I was writing a lot of news about international conflicts and human rights abuses. So when I look back on this poem I see it as a sort of exorcism, a figuring out of the evil minds of war pigs everywhere.”
