SITRI.--The Twelfth Spirit is Sitri. He is a Great Prince and appeareth at first with a Leopard's head and the Wings of a Gryphon, but after the command of the Master of the Exorcism he putteth on Human shape, and that very beautiful. He enflameth men with Women's love, and Women with Men's love; and causeth them also to show themselves naked if it be desired. He governeth 60 Legions of Spirits. His Seal is this, to be worn as a Lamen before thee, etc.

On Rural Route 3, we burned our trash
in a rusted perforated barrel.
It was my chore
by dint of my masculinity,
to tend to the fire.

The mix of circulars and newsprint
the blue fire of ink
the molten plastics
and foul black smoke

Lightening-split oaks
hung over the shower of sparks
in the tumble of trash
my mother's magazines
slick, glossy
the women greased,
their sexes split and pink

afraid of discovery,
I turned the pages with a stick
in the midst of the flame
the oily bellies and half-mast cocks
the red painted mouths and breasts
the tangle of pubic hair and pink labia

all consumed in fire
