Whore

Whore


the sun shines
on your indomitable whore's shadow

your silhouette
your lips

absent moon

agony extirpated
tongue

silk
burgundy

streams of you in me

                                 erupting poetess

innocence



Dom Gabrielli studied literature at Edinburgh University and prepared for his doctorate in Paris and New York. In Paris, Gabrielli’s passion for French literature and thought led him to begin writing, translating, and teaching. He translated widely including published works by Bataille,  Leiris and Jabes. In the early 1990’s, he left the academic world to travel and devote himself to writing, whilst pursuing various business ventures. He has published two books to date. The Eyes of a Man, his first book of poetry, and The Parallel Body, which earned considerable praise. Both books were published by Ziggurat Books International. Gabrielli currently travels extensively.
