  1. Dear partner in crime, you’ve written a poem that is a jewel…a masterpiece of erotica with a message. “Occultistry” . I would love to reblog and share this piece but only with your permission on the presumption this poem was meant for a specific individual and I wouldn’t want to break that spell. If I don’t hear from you on this I will consider it a no go. Have a lovely day.
