Beyond Speech

Beyond speech
Before the words
Even leave your lips
Thinking about thinking
Looking at your thoughts
I see the building blocks 
Of your breaking down
It's noisy sound image
An abstract tree growing concepts
In a forest needing life

* Simeon wages it's demise 

Beyond the tip of your tongue
After supper, when the words 
Have left your mouth
All your childhood questions 
Still unanswered
It's branches are torn apart 
Your tree positioned 
Without arches pays a fee 
To this living organism
For it's inorganic accretions
*Simeon wages it's demise

Beyond the after thought
Your prose has brought about
There's no going back
Past the Temple's entrance
No chugalugging in reverse
Like dead dogs guarding 
White noise on a mountain
Jubilations and alleluias are
Revelations so gloriously bright
They hurt the eyes

*Simeon wages it's demise

Beyond the pandemonium
Of your chitchat usage
On the far right of a good way off
Your thirty tongues
Those serpentine monsters
Are tangled in green homilies
No more conversations needed
Not listening but watching 
Your gold watch a-tick tock ticking 
It's running against time all-embracing

*Simeon wages it's demise

Unsanctioned quiet
Never looks back
Too much said 
Is always too late. 
There are many words for hate.
This is the house your words built
You might have lost your tongue altogether
Like blind passion without a mission
Not even your homing pigeon can
Any longer hear you out.

*Simeon wages your demise
