As Once The Winged Energy Of Delight

 As once the winged energy of delight
carried you over childhood's dark abysses,
now beyond your own life build the great
arch of unimagined bridges.
Wonders happen if we can succeed in passing through the harshest danger; but only in a bright and purely granted achievement can we realize the wonder.
To work with Things in the indescribable relationship is not too hard for us; the pattern grows more intricate and subtle, and being swept along is not enough.
Take your practiced powers and stretch them out until they span the chasm between two contradictions.
.
.
For the god wants to know himself in you.

Ignorant Before The Heavens Of My Life

 Ignorant before the heavens of my life,
I stand and gaze in wonder.
Oh the vastness of the stars.
Their rising and descent.
How still.
As if I didn't exist.
Do I have any share in this? Have I somehow dispensed with their pure effect? Does my blood's ebb and flow change with their changes? Let me put aside every desire, every relationship except this one, so that my heart grows used to its farthest spaces.
Better that it live fully aware, in the terror of its stars, than as if protected, soothed by what is near.

Ralph Rhodes

 All they said was true:
I wrecked my father's bank with my loans
To dabble in wheat; but this was true --
I was buying wheat for him as well,
Who couldn't margin the deal in his name
Because of his church relationship.
And while George Reece was serving his term I chased the will-o'-the-wisp of women, And the mockery of wine in New York.
It's deathly to sicken of wine and women When nothing else is left in life.
But suppose your head is gray, and bowed On a table covered with acrid stubs Of cigarettes and empty glasses, And a knock is heard, and you know it's the knock So long drowned out by popping corks And the pea-cock screams of demireps -- And you look up, and there's your Theft, Who waited until your head was gray, And your heart skipped beats to say to you: The game is ended.
I've called for you.
Go out on Broadway and be run over, They'll ship you back to Spoon River.

Fuck Me

 FUCK ME
I'm all screwed up so
FUCK ME.
FUCK ME and take out the garbage feed the cat and FUCK ME you can do it, I know you can.
FUCK ME and theorize about Sado Masochism's relationship to classical philosophy tell me how this stimulates the fabric of most human relationships, I love that kind of pointless intellectualism so do it again and FUCK ME.
Stop being logical stop contemplating the origins of evil and the beauty of death this is not a TV movie about Plato sex life, this is FUCK ME so FUCK ME It's the pause that refreshes just add water and FUCK ME.
I wrote this so I'd have a good excuse to say "FUCK ME" over and over and over so I could get a lot of attention and look, it worked! So thank you thank you and fuck ME.
