Intestines of the Devil (at Ta Prohm)

They strangle the temple walls,
these intestines of the devils
(the roots at Ta Prohm).
Intestines of the devils—they
leave as they pass this way,
big as huge pythons:
thumbs and limbs, of the dead,
coughed up on their long
journey back to hell…
Returning home at last…,
leaving a haunted midnight!...
