i have transferred into the abstract

where fear is tempered by this storm outside

the rattling doors the rolling deepest groans

the rain is incessantly persistent

the gardens underwater like sunken cities

old dark blood throbs in my main vein in my tree

i am the pots and pans of evergreen water

i am the silvered bits of star glimmered in puddled mirrors

i am the fury of age undermined by a terrible rust

the wind shrieks tormenting idiots grovel

their huts and villages vanquished yes i am blown away

my mercy all used up when midnight sank my canoe

the blinded flash of bats in camera off line in slimy bark

the tautened twisted spidered threads as the orb hangs dead

nothing frightens me in my hurricanes or typhoon

lashed by whips of the spur studded drops

my steed carries me into allegro nights

where emptiness transfusions as chasm

oh my nasty procedure

now i am saw

now i am herd

now i am glistened to on ferrari quartz crystal thingies

now i am returned unto my old lucky-pants bed

snugly ugly in the down of morning yet to come

i will awake unintimidated by badly dreamt people

who hound me all through my falling night

until the horizon crackles like a dim spark

and my palms lay hammered flat by rat and love

    Hail this relay
    I know knot what to make on it
    Except play work work play
    Daughter ironically or appropriately
    Dances, no shone, Aurora
    It was nothing
    No canned V needed no need to please
    Yet the inscrutable it seems
    Were really easily pleased
    The weather was forever unphased
    Slightly grazed
    A swathe of rays and gauze
    Blew away onto and out of our way
    Someone thought they saved the day
    A banshee screamed to stop the sylph
    From being flown awry
    Trying not to wander why
    The sky will cry itself dry

    One great day the Lord of Wherever sent his angel Steve to earth…Steve wasn’t like the other angels with their bells and whistles, he didn’t have an especially “heavenly” voice (and besides…they all use autotune out there anyway), but the Lord sent him to sing to the people and sing he did and so he still does and we thank him for that.

    June is bustin’ out all over!
    The sheep aren’t sleepin’ anymore!
    All the rams that chase ewe-sheep
    All determined there’ll be new sheep
    and the ewe-sheep aren’t even keepin’ score!
