    What

    Whomever is-Mary-loved,

    Is loved-

    By us,

    Grateful,

    For,

    though-

    We seem apart-

    We lead-Inseparable lives-

    Our shadows-

    Lie side-

    By side-

    Weve been-

    Once Us-

    Weve-

    Divided you-

    Thus,-

    Thru,

    The love of-

    Your mother,

    Must exceed-

    The love of your-

    Own, for wherever-Upon the world you-

    Shes or has been there-

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    For us,

    Head

    When they-

    Speak of-

    Their living-

    Its always:My head-

    as though their-

    legs have been-

    torn apart, as if the-

    hearts are not unfolded-

    by such love, as to leave-

    them so entirely breathless-

    so entirely mindful, of the-

    keenest in lifes-

    and if left brazen, muted-

    in denizens unmarked-

    if the duty, to oneself-and-

    God is lost,

    What becomes of a fate-

    So unequal, as to leave oneself-Un-illuminated-

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    5/240

    Lacking ,

    And when shall you cleanse the-

    Bars that set you, away from-Your makers,

    And how will you adorn theirs,

    (Mine-yours charge.)

    To straighten the olden bent-

    Into the fours-

    Into alls-

    Abodes,

    Even if without their-

    Knowing nesss,

    Sins, even now-

    Even as you-

    Unmake the,

    Beds lost,

    By their-

    Fathers,And-

    Mothers-

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    6/240

    Un-winsome-

    Nesss-

    House,

    And behold the-

    Rest of you-If its a laden-apparition youre-

    After,

    Perhaps your head-

    Is really far-

    Above you-

    Entrenched-

    Into eternity-

    (Light)-Upheld in-

    Thereafter-

    Wondering-

    The easiest way-

    For you home-

    For to set forth along--

    These paths--

    Are the eighth-

    Wave-

    masters,

    who have risen-

    After their bodies,

    (Only)

    After Cain and Abel-

    Beget,Genesis 4,5-

    Mary

    If Havva-Doesnt approve-

    Its not conceivable--

    We wont acquiesce-

    For everyone else-

    Can not exist-

    Unless shes alive,

    Not even-

    A silhouette forms-Without the two of us,

    You cant ever-

    Be born,

    Until that love-

    Is met,

    Formed-

    Into your favor,

    Fruition-

    Is her inception,

    Her cup-

    Creed-

    Imitation-

    Yours,

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    The Room

    A Body was found-

    on 53rd street-

    they missed-Christs room-

    by 300 feet,

    The, left-

    Arent Abled-

    Yet at all,

    Abel meant:

    That though-

    Your soul-Is re-born,

    She (he) has to be-

    Carried on-

    Our shoulders-

    Time after time,

    And the Greater Bears (Cains)-

    Will have to march-

    The call to wars-

    (youre off their backs)-

    (They have no choice but to react at all)-

    But Pam is home-

    The crossing is over-

    And your body, shall-

    Not be showered, for-

    The wars in space, are in-Real as

    Now,

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    9/240

    Until two is home,

    Until deliverance is-

    Known-

    Before it-becomes,

    Back,

    To Us,(From Farda)-

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    Us

    It doesnt matter-

    What you are-

    For when you close-

    Your eyes,

    Youre dreaming of a-World that must-

    Re-invent itself-

    (After the fall)-

    For death is-

    Not true,

    And for-

    whether-

    You-

    Close your eyes-

    Or not,

    The dream is-

    Done,

    Ive walked through-

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    11/240

    Doors unopened-

    Doors slanted-

    Shut,

    Doors that-

    Cant exist-

    At all,

    And the-Overwhelming-

    Revelations are:

    Tis renewal-

    Been too long-

    Due,

    And the creed-

    Must be: the-

    Humannesss-

    At loss,

    If the reparation-

    Un-doings ours,

    The house will-

    Crumble over-

    Our homes,

    And tribes,(One by one)

    As in the past,

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    12/240

    The will of god-

    Is irreversible,

    If the children-

    And the meek-

    Are prayed upon,

    If the consciousness-

    Of his is forlorn, by-Grief over, the ones-

    He adores first-

    And foremost-

    Us,

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    13/240

    Greed

    The affluent-

    Ass too big,

    It stalls:Education, environment, jobs-

    And so forth,

    For the reduction of-

    Their backs m ass-

    There are more rules-

    Disclosed,

    Persist in ignorance-

    And be reduced in tiers-In large bits-

    (one by one)-

    Progress as educated herein-

    And your very shelters-

    Wont be everyone elses-

    Homes,

    And these rules have been written-

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    14/240

    One after another,

    Theres no choice-

    But serene co-existence-

    Of whats fair,

    (for another)-

    It isnt yours to begin,

    It wasnt yours at the end,And the in between is divided,

    By these wordsset in stones,

    Amongst the jewels borrowed from-

    (ours)-

    Welfare

    (Day ( roose) velts),

    And to hear and not obey-

    Is to be without a home:Out of that tier youre,

    On, re-born on the-

    Other side of our,

    Fairs,

    This kingdom is an-

    Immense, oyster-

    Of a shell, that-

    Shall abandon,

    None,

    Trust us,

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    15/240

    Both

    No way-

    I come and go-

    Unaffected,

    By all the ruins,

    The tyranny-

    Of men-

    Against-

    Their mothers-Sisters,

    Daughters,

    And each-

    Other,

    The exclusiveness-

    Of wealth-

    And power,

    Must come down-

    We are sciences-

    Priests-

    Poets,

    And swords-

    Continually,

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    16/240

    You can redeem-

    Gather-

    disperse

    And reborn,

    Perpetually-

    Or not come-

    Back-At all,

    But -

    Unrecognizable-

    As man-

    -Or mans friend-

    As something-

    Holy,

    That can-

    Behold,

    Beyond its given-shell:

    Both the possibility,

    And the beauty-

    Of others--

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    17/240

    Cost

    They wont uncover-

    The truth,

    Nor will they-Confess-

    To their-

    True intentions:

    Which are to create-

    Problems-

    Smallest made large-

    To distract-

    Consensus from:Whats really-

    Ailing them:

    Theyre-

    Failing-

    Stale,

    unwrought

    unhappy couples-

    Pretending-

    To be- Straight-

    Just to stay-

    Above-

    Everyone else-

    By grabbing:

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    18/240

    Power and wealth-

    Through means

    Made-legal-But

    unjust

    illicit-

    Unconscionable-

    Just to continue-

    In the same-

    Dormant-

    Stage-As before,

    (by robbing everyone else)-

    But death-

    Will ring-

    Upon you,

    And there-

    Is no way-

    Back-

    Home,

    because:

    when all you-

    live

    lies-

    In closets,

    Guilt-ridden,Unfaithful,

    lofts,

    Neanderthal Man

    For the fear-

    Of drowning,

    And for the-

    Sounds-of-music,

    (My desire of women)

    The shores-Will close,

    To your fates,

    For youre the-

    Drifted-

    Ferrous,

    In the begin,

    Malnourished-

    Entangled,

    In the end-

    By the-fisherman-

    In me,

    Whos been-

    Through the-

    Road-

    Twice,(Barefoot)--

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    21/240

    And Before-

    Once came,

    Through-

    The doors-

    Tis was written-Upon the walls-

    Confirmed,

    Before you-

    Can arrive,

    I walked-

    The acts,

    With-

    W

    O r, ds.

    And after you receive-

    These, the only way-

    Home, is the-

    Force (my name,)

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    22/240

    Smell

    The smell-

    Of women-

    On women-

    Up- Nined-

    So Amazon-So unfound,

    Had to go-

    Somewhere,

    (It did)-

    We sat on her/his-

    Grounds,

    Watched her moons-

    In the horizon,

    (Decelerated-

    lumbering- orbit)-

    A new brand-

    Of physiology-

    Self-contained-

    Declared-

    And we watched-With eyes-of yes,

    (And made love)-

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    23/240

    (But they favor one-another)-

    And left smelling their way,

    Jang

    Come through

    The doors of me,

    Come through-

    And remember:There are endless-

    Deserts on Andromeda-

    Footprints of Earth-

    And that you wont-

    Hear us well,

    But you will come-

    To berate,

    (Youve been by-

    Then)-

    And that you

    Bring destruction-

    To meet your end-

    (You have been called

    there,)

    For to raise a sword-Against my names-

    Is to never be again.-

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    24/240

    And that your false-

    saints, are my sent,

    for unless theyre-covered in waste,

    you wont lie-

    in that death-

    less, bed,

    your end.

    Perfection

    The path-

    To perfection,

    Is erroneous-Illogical,

    Made of tiny-

    Events that-

    Are:

    Fortunate-

    Tragic,

    Accidental-

    Seams,

    Just to gather the-

    Two permanent strides,

    That are exclusive to you,

    And The God above,

    For no-

    Path to perfection is without,

    (Us)-And no river is complete-

    Without yourself,

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    25/240

    Proof

    Im looking-

    At the crests-That build up-

    A crime,

    Not the levers-

    Of that whittle,

    Those arms-

    Move so-

    Inordinately-

    Out of time,

    (Black-and-white),

    I can see the shadowy-

    Fogs, hang,

    Trailing,

    Every single-

    Act of evil,

    For theyre-

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    26/240

    Dished out,

    In fields-

    Knowable-

    (So Telling)-Fields,

    Left and right,

    Fields in:

    Closets,

    Bedrooms,

    Pigs-in-the-

    Alcohol-rooms,

    And no, I shall see-

    More than carefully-

    More than once, that -

    Youre uncooled, by the-

    Very frenzy youre-

    Leaving-on so-

    Unheeded-

    Shoulders,Prove,

    To give,

    Shes an

    Endowment,Of eternity,

    Her planets-

    Are as large-

    As Jupiter-

    And go

    Around-

    The Suns,

    We were born there-

    First, and loved more-

    Than, you can perceive,

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    29/240

    So listen:

    You can not wear my clothes-nor ruin my harvest,

    to bring me litters-

    And never can you move-

    my arms or legs-

    unless Lords wishes

    Not-alones,

    Games,

    (For both cant)-

    In a world unsettled-

    Only by this-

    And hide-

    (The intrusions)-

    With others

    yourselves)-

    And to love-

    Your neighbor-

    As I love him or her,

    For Youre all sons of-

    Nor can they be-

    Deceived-

    Of their-

    Meaning-

    They support-

    Like bones-Whether you-

    Agree or not-

    Isnt our hold-

    The padding-

    Is made of-

    Nos,

    The others-Plenty,

    Both nations are-

    Ours,

    And we possess-

    Whats right-

    Or left,

    (theyre in me)-

    We deal with them-According to

    Their anger and-

    Envy,

    Until the-

    38/240

    For men-

    Is-fear-

    Free,

    Until the two daughters-

    Are known, and left-

    Un-provoked-

    In their-

    Souls-

    Bodies,

    Until the chaos- has-

    Become nominal-

    (It has no-

    currency)

    And because-just as

    Before -they-know-

    Not-What theyre-Doing-

    Father is the son-

    Just as you

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    39/240

    knew-

    The judgment-Becomes-

    As the knowledge-

    Grew,

    When

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    40/240

    Every time anger goes up,

    Not just lives, but the-

    Value of women are-Jeopardized,

    Anger is how men-

    Come together,

    What drives-

    Them-

    Out-

    Of-

    Tiny-Closets,

    The size of fists-

    And locks,

    Creators-

    Of ruins-

    They-

    Are,

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    41/240

    But listen:

    All the dungeons-

    Have your names-From now on, until-

    My will is met, until-

    Salvations two, tis after-

    All is for no one-

    But myself-

    (and you)-

    Pan and I

    You and i-Must be rid-

    Of this anger-

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    42/240

    Were feeling now,

    You and must abandon-

    The un-restful out of this-Circle-

    Without,

    For though everyone must always-

    Belong,

    If the state of your minds exacerbates-

    The problems,

    If mines agrees with yours, without ponder,

    Then were done wronged-And you were on my right,

    Born out of Sum-

    Right and back-

    Out,

    Jump

    You jump the roofs-While I crawl through-

    The ditches-

    45/240

    Alone,

    So the giving-

    Shall be delayed-For no time-

    At all,

    And tell them:

    The giving is frenzied-

    By such love,

    That the giving-

    And the receiving-

    Shall be ignored-For the very sake-

    Of the beholders-

    Who Sought,

    No Stream

    I try not-to-

    Make a spectacle-

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    46/240

    Enough backs to cheer-

    You on,

    Theyve been finding-

    Pieces of people-

    Around the Thames,

    Islam Abad,

    Port-Au-prince

    Anywhere the-

    Want of men-for men decreases-

    The adhesion-

    Of fates,

    Thus tis rule has never-Been truer::

    You must self-annihilate-

    92/240

    By any means-

    Needed,

    So the mothers,the children,

    the fathers,

    Are saved-

    By wiping-

    Out,

    Your trace,

    So I can protect-

    The childrens-One by one-

    Out by calmness-

    Or force,

    By the book-

    by the swords,

    by words made into-

    pools,

    by the back-of my right-

    and left legs,

    by sons-

    Abels are barred-

    From marrying onto-My names for 900 years-

    Or more, for breaking the-

    Trust, bestowed, and instead-

    Nines over their net, must set-

    Forth, for thus they shall not-

    Be abandoned at all, but kept-

    At a distance, without lights-

    Immediacy, which reveals too:Theyve covered themselves-

    in their own waste (food)-and,

    can only slowly be driven out,

    (change your food or fast now)-

    And if the trust is broken again:

    It means the doors of heaven-

    Closes to her names marriage-

    As well, for 400 years or so,And this must be adhered-

    To, before their new name is-

    Given out,

    And if the nines-left, and-

    right arent-

    Closed to my names and-

    Ghosts- (or celibate,)

    The closure of Abels to my

    Names is forever--

    Sure-

    D,

    Therefore half of the-

    Doors of heaven,Must Be straight-

    From now on,

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    Or there shall-

    Be no unions-

    In between The Pams-

    Names,

    Or Abels,

    And ours,

    For the marriages of-

    The gay couples are-

    Only for leading-

    Of their rivers,Onto our-

    Homes,

    The fours happiness must-

    Be the orientation-

    Of the Lords-

    Undivided,

    To have-

    Real JoyInto its-

    And after a night-

    Of dreaming of-

    Losing my-

    Father to-The other-

    Side of-

    shorts,

    Who wouldnt be short-

    But for the long,

    Length of their-

    Hair,

    And the heels of-Their women so high-

    You know their newborn,

    Are so unsafe under them,

    And grow young, never-

    Having known the-

    Difference,

    At all,

    But theyre orbiting Mars,In segregated rooms,

    Because their-

    96/240

    Scents are so-

    Unlike each-

    Others-That its a miracle-

    They mate, one,

    And two that-

    They dont mourn 365-

    Days of year, not just,

    Most of its hours,

    And the Is down here,

    In our times- wonder,Why nothing:

    No death, no amount-

    Of civil unrest-

    Changes their world-

    Out of those old-

    Garments,

    Now,

    But deep down-They too must know-

    No- some amongst us-

    must never come back,And its that permanence-

    Of gods will, that bring-

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    97/240

    The tears back from-

    Farda,

    And let their women separate-For they must bring those-

    To the very notion-That opposites may-

    I see you in the-

    Bazaars, and malls,

    Waiting to be ushered-

    In by the very -

    Smell of your-

    Let it be for the-

    Into the black holes,

    In surrender-

    By war,By acts after commands-

    For their foils,

    Whereupon,

    Death has only become-

    Those who-

    May never-

    Come back,

    When Death-Just a transitional-

    Just by your deeds,

    But too, by your-

    Thoughts, and-

    Feed,

    By the very anticipation-

    That youll do more harm,Than good,

    There the man-holes are laid upon-

    Every river for keeps,

    Somewhere A.D.

    When we get a chance at them,With their sads and their guns,

    Their rested ships invented-

    By us,

    In their sainted beds-

    By our own older kin-

    The newly armed,

    The voice of apparition-

    Had been the eldest son,When the shepherdess and-

    I shall die un peacefully-

    Amongst her stars,

    The big dipper-

    Is hoarding-

    The sycophants on,

    And shes born amongst-

    The deserts for the detection-

    Of their sound-

    When the other dipper is my mom,

    For the acts of leaving them-

    Entirely out,

    For their sins against my names-

    And ours,

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    108/240

    And for the thoughts in their backs-

    Are irredeemable,

    Un returnable,

    When so many neighborhoods-

    Are unsound,

    All you have to do, make certain-

    We are-Found,

    Take as much as you can have,

    Through and we were all-

    Taken,

    Women walked-

    With long fearsome-

    Faces,Large thickened-

    Nails,

    They werent really certain-

    Of themselves,

    And why the mens glances-

    Never met their owns,

    The children were furious-

    For unknown reasons,

    And fearful of going-

    To the bathrooms alone,

    And everything hurt-

    Everyone rushed-

    For someone elses-

    Turn,

    110/240

    The mens bellies stank of-

    Vomit of hormones and booze-

    In them-(dehumanizing,)

    The taste of their fathers-

    Fathers meat-

    Would be as unfamiliar as-

    A womans scent-

    This stuff makes your soul-

    Black and blue child,

    Bruised like a beaten-Faces,

    And youll forget to wonder:

    Why you can never-

    Look ahead without-

    Worrying pasts-

    Unchangeable-

    Weight,

    And why God seems-

    Like a distant-

    Never comprehending-

    Terrain,

    Why nothing reaches the-

    Dimmed light-

    Inside your fates:

    the bowels of universes-clean yourselves now,

    (Such deaths,)

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    111/240

    And why you only wanted-

    Your ways,

    The Second One

    The new you is-

    A tall woman,

    With raised shoulders-

    And many flowering heads-

    They love you a lot there-

    In France,

    They know you are: them-

    With their long-Lit noses-

    They can smell the-

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    112/240

    Serenity of your height,

    The sturdiness-

    Of our forests,And you giggle-

    With bursts-

    Of joy-

    They say you learned it-

    In heaven,

    They say heavens-

    Love for you-

    Is so many layered,And of course I-

    Wont see you-

    Africa is a far away-

    Befriend,

    But youll marry us-

    Two,

    The doors are half-

    Straight-

    Half gay-

    By then,

    By then, the merest-

    Mention of-Us,

    Shall set their-

    Minds in repose-

    At the mysteries of-

    World-Loves-

    Wonder,

    At how-

    Souls-

    Are never set apart-

    When their bode-

    Is well,

    And how what they call God-Is your love, how what they call-

    Devil, was their scribe-

    And our loss,

    But how the city-

    Of the sky-

    Brought both heaven-

    And hell alive, out-

    Of loves thunder,

    And youll see your portrait-

    Eternal-

    Serene-

    Hung-By our Mothers-

    Wears

    In un-Somewhere,

    Everyone knows everything,

    On somewhere-

    They pretend-

    They now nothing,And somehow,

    This reduces-

    115/240

    Turbulence-

    Of the turns-

    I make along-This hap hazardous road,

    The pavements arent-

    Crowded by curtsies-

    Or sniper fire,

    By the claimant-

    To houses of each-

    Others by soil,

    By virtue less nesss-Votes,

    By the men in suits,

    Who rather send a black-

    Man instead,

    (They assume hes not-

    Restrained by his faith-

    But they are,)

    Or by those who-

    Watch the wounds-

    Of un-heal-able,

    And want timelessness-Restore,

    There are a dozen-

    Windows that open-

    On some other-

    World,

    Theres a holy ghost,

    That wears my names,

    Less or more,

    We shall put the-

    Great twist on-

    The meaning ness,

    By the end of-

    The day-

    The infinite halo-

    Of carving-The future,

    Out of now,

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    117/240

    The unreasonable,

    Out of much reasoned-

    With,Doing away with what-

    Youve been-

    Taught,

    And getting away with-

    What the truth is-

    And has always-

    Been so,

    For the mere sake-Of the muted horses,

    The calves of the unborn,

    For the appeasement to the-

    Silence of things,

    The greats yet-

    Unknowns,

    And to know the words-

    Arent by abandonment-

    Of purpose, nor by-

    The weakness of-

    The force,

    Theyre never,

    Meant to divide-Nor to dissemble-

    The righteous of-

    Their soul,

    But to deliver the blind-

    Back onto the-Road traveled,

    By more-

    Attraction

    Light and matter-

    Are attracted to one another,

    Like no other call,

    But tis attraction is to her vibes,

    Is exclusive to their souls,

    And they are women-They have men in their thighs,

    They have men waiting with-

    119/240

    Their follicles been missing,

    For there is so heavy handed-

    It falls and erodes-By the way side,

    By the non-existing floors,

    And if the rape of children-

    And the pillage dont soon close,

    The heads of women shall lose,

    Their ties of men-

    For the sinnest most-

    Means: the heaviest tolls,Been un-carrying-

    So the rest of the-

    Coming for you-

    Shall be so much-

    Worse,

    If you dont-Comprehend the-

    News,

    And cleanse the-

    wounds up by your-

    Hands and by-Washing their feet-

    Where the rivers dont-

    The Hoodies are,

    Like wearing a body of-

    Armor,

    Heads full of teeth,You walk around in them,

    Wondering why everything-

    Swings one way or another-

    Like a pendulum,

    The balance always-

    On feet,

    Which is unusual for me,

    I walk with my head,

    In front,

    The tails are-

    Almost nearly gone,

    But for clusters-

    Of harvest-

    Weeds,

    (The un forgivable s,)And I slowly wonder why my-

    Shadow looks the opposite-

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    140/240

    Of how I feel,

    I must be walking like-

    Strange men do,Polished,

    Silver,

    With hints of muscles-

    As ropes,

    As loaves-

    Of pounded-Roads,

    Like a candle made of-

    Dark footprint,

    With weight that-

    Promises to cave in,

    Over its own-

    By the meek,

    Like youre walking into ten,

    I take impressions-

    Of her in pencil,

    She looks stoic-

    And Im stern,

    Her face looks-

    Like my own,It makes me wonder-

    About the roots-

    For words,

    How their sources of form-

    Exist in me,

    Then she says:

    Colors,

    Like Ive learned the science of-

    Shorelines,

    By having been immersed in-

    Her wait,

    For having thus broken loose-

    Against plumes-

    Of envy,

    And the brush color movements-Are like silk,

    For the tenements of her,

    Fined,

    And somewhere for-

    Nor agree with anyone-

    Else,

    There the lovers of all-

    Invulnerable,

    To their own,

    No body parts-

    The ones who smile-

    Widely ,

    To spark-

    Hope,

    (If you care,)

    The end of the world

    If the body and soul-

    Of lord is approached-

    Wantonly by men in any way-

    Its the end of the world for everyone-

    As they have known it,

    I shall be Adam again-

    With no eve-

    Their souls-And ghosts

    Must live in-

    birds and-

    beasts-

    and not anywhere-

    near eden-

    where Ill carry-

    the universes-

    and give birth-to myself-

    for world with these-

    intruders is a one that-

    may not be kept as it is-

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    175/240

    The birds and the beasts shall not-Become humans soon again-

    they may not be anything-

    But machines-

    That produce waste-

    Until their very-

    Souls lose-

    Themselves-

    In heat-with spirits-

    That cant-

    Sing or-

    Direct-

    Each

    Other-

    Into evilness--

    Wings,

    Until my will is met-

    There shall be no other-

    Intelligent being-

    Than myself,

    By degrees

    The Abe wants to-

    Blow air and-

    Hot ash-

    Waste-Into my ear-

    And their smells are-

    Intolerable-

    To worst,

    The virtue less ness,

    Its un valor,

    The cowardice-

    Of its narrowly-Inescapable-

    Doors,

    The crocodile beef-

    The brawn less-

    Movements-

    Of a snail-

    In-a-pit,

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    177/240

    But the empty-

    Clouds are-Moving into the steppes,

    To narrow the-

    Survival rates-

    And-

    Close,

    By degrees,

    And the woman with-

    4 out of-Wed-lock,

    Children,

    Calls the police for the-

    Protection of her-

    Uncle,

    Whos been the tormentor-

    Of ours,

    And they send me-

    A Cop-

    Whore,

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    178/240

    Birth of two

    I came out-

    Looking for a team-

    Head out first-

    Hands clasped-

    Gazing at her-Toes-

    Thinking Ive been-

    Around Sirius-Bs-

    Many times-

    Before,

    And I looked-

    Like a giant dwarf-

    Compact, and-

    Well lit-

    As lord,

    And with the many-

    Perseus wings-

    There and-

    Then I-

    Should have wished:I cant be pulling-

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    179/240

    On medusas hair-

    No more,

    But I were to-And it happened-

    And her body came home-

    And startled everyone-

    By her looks-

    And her innocence-

    Ways-

    And woes,

    And I looked for-The company of-

    Others,

    And they preached,

    And with a tongue-

    Of soaps-

    I repeated-

    Everything I heard-

    On these streets,

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    180/240

    And there was no more-

    Than billions seeds,

    I Planted,

    On crinkled seas,In between,

    And I looked amongst-

    Them,

    For congregations-

    And people to meet,

    (But was always alone,)

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    181/240

    The sea

    I think they started-

    Believing me,Their nuts are hurling-

    Themselves,

    The wounded laying-

    Down,

    In the office,

    Behind-

    The kitchen counters-

    By mothers-By lovers,

    Its also Sabbath:

    Meaning they cant-

    Quite believe,

    That cosmos-

    Must cleanse-

    Itself-

    Of wrongs-

    By any-

    Means,

    Necessary-

    Which isnt to say:

    They werent forewarned-

    Moses is myself-

    And by the-Shoulder-

    Of every dawn-

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    182/240

    There were voices-

    Of strife-From the-

    Being-

    Saved,

    (And every blooming day,)

    Perhaps there are punishments-

    For the lack-

    Of faith,

    (though Im not a-punisher,)

    The drums are-

    The trumpets,

    The cows can be-

    And the relatives,

    Of petrified-

    Gravity,

    The being targets-

    Of scorn,

    The blessed-

    Patterns-

    Of-

    Powerless,

    (felt across so many-

    faces,)Dare to be-

    183/240

  • 8/3/2019 Chronicles 3

    And eternal-Faith,

    In between being born-

    Well-

    Or to the end of

    Budlongs branches-

    Are already laid-

    Into eternity-Hall,

    Voices-

    Of despair-

    For the health-

    Of everyone-

    Is here at stake,

    Theres the hum-

    Of the trees-

    The groves of-

    Careless feet,

    The stretched out-

    Hands of-

    The future,Wanting to be,

    185/240

    The age of scars

    All along the-

    Watchtowers,

    The abed-And caned-

    All the deviously-

    Unmet,

    They each wanted his-

    Or her-

    Way,

    And to rise above the-

    Judgment-Of those who-

    Care,

    But the branches-

    Held steady-

    As the lord,

    Himself,

    Revelations became whispers-

    In the wind,

    Things that could not-

    Have been explained,

    Slowly-

    Became everyones-

    Verse,

    The mutiny,

    The wars,

    186/240

    The discords-

    In between the-

    Stretched out-

    Parts,

    The wantonness-

    Of wanting,

    The disparity-

    Of in needs,The fathers-

    And mothers

    Torn,

    Apart,

    No one fasted-

    No one knew how,

    The face of reality-

    Became a gigantic scar,

    The portrait-

    Of eternal-

    Hushed,

    And abandoned-

    And reclaimed-

    Every moment-

    By the acts,Of the-

    Is holding-

    When I couldnt walk-

    Or physically crawl,

    Near the-
