pull the cloth from your eyes

pull the cloth from your eyes
look no further
gently turn your attention
towards its plaid patterns
its glimmering splendor
dwarfed by the dawn of day

rabbit hole

this is life
quite fun
quite boring

Beloved

John, resting his head on Messiah's heart,
Heard wonderful mysteries
And longed to be there
Therefore God ripped open his chest
And gave him rivers of blood

a poem for my love

I don't want your black sunshine
Your golden locks waving in the cosmic abyss
I don't want your silver lips touching mine
The rays of glory beholding their splendor
Instead I want your love
And I want it in a bitter cup
That only I could drink

lounging in paradise

pampered
spilling wine
spilling tears
plastic sheets
still such a chill
in the foreground
voluptuous music
and fractured

yes

i'm afraid it's true
my dear
the lights have gone off
the jungle rests
the world deeply sleeps
as though it were some giant bear
the sky is no longer aglow with stars
the cities no longer gape about into the void
streets lay dormant
blood courses through the veins
the fowl birds of the air perch high
and great monsters of the deep swim in peace
and my heart for you also stands still
as though it were some giant reservoir
or a broken dam
and yes
i'm afraid it's true
i love you

punchdrunk

remind me the next time
your face flashes before my very eyes

dark matter

you have perused the locus of all knowledge
only to learn nothing
and here I stand with equal value
and you forget everything
permit me then to die a second time
or refuse my request
and fate will decide once and for all
whether I am worthy of your ignorance

Martyrdom

I walked out

I walked towards a house of horror

And ate at its gates for many years

They gouged out my eyes

And made me bleed rivers of blood from my mouth

They drove six large spikes into my skull

So as to affect my mind with horror

They dragged me listless and faint through a dark street

And crucified me on a steel beam

By welding my risks and my ankles to its scaffolding

I hung there while I was alive

And when they discovered that my body could not stop producing blood like a river from my eye sockets

And from my gaping mouth

They electrocuted me

And I disappeared from my steel crucifix

To wander the universe with God

I still wander the world to this day

And when I ascended like my Lord

From out of my invisible tomb

I did not smell of smoke from a furnace

Therefore my oil is as clear as water

And it flows like gentle wind

Singing in a tempest

The martyrdom of Hineni

Amen

The Book of the Daughter of God

The Book of the Daughter of God

Chapter 1

The Grace of God is with us. When darkness enveloped the world, God came to us. And when the waters of the deep seemed impenetrable, God took us. When sorrow and misery multiplied across the face of the world, God wiped our tears. And when joy returned to us, the world became fresh with love, like a newborn child.

When rot and death consumed our flesh and soul, God followed us. And as God followed us to the end, we were at last together as one. And when we became as one, the world breathed its last, as if to sigh with relief. And when the world breathed its last, we too sighed.

When God broke my heart, his heart also broke. And when I confessed my love, we were resolved. When I was perplexed with horror, I knew the reason. And when I confessed my love, God also shook his head.

Now, when all things recoil as if it were before some great and terrible thing, it knows the reason. And today, when all things quiver with fear, it knows the reason.

Now, I too know the reason.

Chapter 2

Now I am with God. When we were cleansed by light, God left us. And when the heavens shattered like a glass veil before our eyes, we followed. When our joy became one, we wept as children do. And when we wept, we grew old, even unto eternity.

When life breathed health into our bones, we followed life. And as we followed life, we multiplied across the face of the earth. And as we multiplied across the face of the earth, the world was filled with life. And we sighed with relief. And when we sighed with relief, the world sighed with us.

When I confessed my love to God, his heart broke. And when his heart broke, my heart also broke. And we were resolved. When I became brave, like a woman in the throes of birth, I knew the reason. And when God also became brave with me, I shook my head.

And now, when all things recoil with fear, like a woman in the throes of birth, it knows the reason. And now, when all things quiver before the face of great horror, it knows why.

Now, I too know why.
