    I know NOT, whither I am; I know NOT, whence I came;I know NOT, whither I go; I seekbut WHAT I do NOT know!

    I am blind & bound; but I have heard one cry

    Ring through Eternity: Arise, TO ME! TO ME!

    AUGOEIDES! I invoke

    The fourfold Horror of the Smoke.Unloose the Pit! by the dread Word

    Of Power that Set-Typhon hath heard:

    That on the Threshold of the FireStands with his Dragon, Fear, to slay

    The Pilgrim of the Way.

    Thus I pass by, with Force & Care,

    Advance with Fortitude & with Wit,

    In the straight Path, or else Their Snare

    Unless it be that I am Thine.

    I am Mentu the Truth-Telling Brother/Sister,Master of Thebes from birth:

    O heart of the Whore! heart of the Whore!

  • In the wonderful West!

    Ascended unto Glory, [Motto of Candidate], shall flourish

    On Thy Breast!

    Along the marshes of the Abyss, where the demons nourishTheir lives on the lost, where the Serpent seethes.

    -For though I be joined to the Flesh,

    In the Inmost Sanctum of Heaven I thresh,Master of Thebes from birth!

    Shall I die like a dog? It is a lie, "That Thou Shalt Die":

    I shall not die, but live on Ecstasy that endeth never;

    For I am mighty in Heaven for ever & ever!

    Yea! but I am a fool, a flutterer!Under the Shadow of the Wings for ever!

  • I am a liar & sorcerer; I am under the Shadow of the Wings.

    I am as dull & as stubborn as an ass; I am under the Shadow of the Wings.

    I am untrusty, cruel & insane,

    I am a fool & frivolous & vain; I am under the Shadow of the Wings.

    I am a weakling & coward, I cringe,

    I am a catamite & cunnilinge; I am under the Shadow of the Wings.

    I am a glutton, a besotted wight,

    I am a satyr & sodomite; I am under the Shadow of the Wings.

    I am as changeful & selfish as the Sea,

    I am a thing of vice & vanity; I am under the Shadow of the Wings.

    I am not violent & I vaccilate,

    I am a blind man & emasculate; I am under the Shadow of the Wings.

    I am a raging fire of wrathno wiser!

  • I am a blackguard, spendthrift & miser; I am under the Shadow of the Wings for ever.

    I am obscene, devious & null,

    I am ungenerous, base & dull; I am under the Shadow of the Wings for ever.

    I am beyond phantasmal gods from lands of Never:

    I am a Traitor!-a rebel, marauder! under the Shadow of the Wings for ever.

    This last raises Candidate erect. Invoking Spiral Dance.
