freeze dryed

   it is the atomic weight that matters most.

   violent barbiturate toungues empty coffee cups 
   and deliver the insight.

  before there was religion there
 was foldgers dry roast.

  before the lunar landing there
  was instant oatmeal.

   still my toungue is heavy with saliva.
   i shall not lie.

   it is the description that matters least.

  the patient deconstruction of all 
  unsound perspectives.

   bright and ultra bright scientific 
   notations fell from heaven like lightening.

  the witnesses annotated cauterized edges
  and spoke in the most literal sense.

  before there was a mother there 
  was a mosaic womb.

  before there was a helix faith 
  there was a clay parable.

  still the pencil aches in the 
  palm of my hand.

  i shall not murder.

   it is the pattern that matters most.

   catching low tide shells in between shallow moons.

   fringed hands count down the gene pool legend,
   seperated only by accented lips.

   before there was a cleric in a robe
   there was a tilt in the axis.

   before there was a fat bellied fertility goddess
   there was a splinter in a finger.

   still my stomach is full of acrid 
  compound naratives.

   i shall not want.
