Manuel Typewriter

New horizon never done this before 
                                              new landscape 
running out of time running out of space out of ink
the only reminder of this reality 
pack it up, the thwack thwack of this machine is pulsing 
a mind of its own 
mechanical brain 
mechanical body 
keys striking like a viper against the page
a row of steel teeth lashing out against imagination 
a row of Buddhist Monks
a row of Muslims 
all bowing towards this essence of creation 
going in and out of this world
riding the wave of unseen spring time rain 
spring time water gushing forth 
shared by all
territory mused by all
drink from this chalice, this jug my friends 
come join us in this moment 
this beautiful sunrise 
even the sunset is nice
as the moon waxes
pours out like the candle stick
melting and running down too the floor of the psyche
recall this moment when the light dimmed 
shadows all staring in calm desperation 
waiting for the sun to rise again 
gripping my cold embrace 
we hugged
as the animals howled 
and so did we
our perfect random chaos
