the whore and the holy one

holy whore 5

For I am the first and the last

I am the honored one and the scorned one,

holy whore 3

I am the whore and the holy one

i am the silence that is incomprehensible

and the idea whose remembrance is frequent.

holy whore 2

I am the voice whose sound is manifold

and the word whose appearance is multiple.

I am the utterance of my name,

holy whore
