Not Be Essence That Cannot Be



                         Breathing With Honey


                          the Smile       involves   Pestilence

         part of a fish      no joy.   nothing is born
                        this  month     the mechanism

             puzzles      We Know    the instinkt

                                  is a patch within
                         memory

                                at the time of Milk
                         moving quickly
                         saturating the
                         clusters of
                         flowers             Peace is
                 the building material within a
                                         generation   of
                      fragrance.
                                glowing white. Selah!

                    I enkindle hum
                               an
                               ity        clearness sing.

       A bursting & inhaling in the inward search

                                              the breathing

                            with honey

                                    the first fruit of courage
            furious bubble       the moon between full Sun

                                            the wishbone 
                          spirals toward the state of 
                       originating     the slime-worm
                    is holy           
                                    it moves from place to
               place      its like      is food    its   song
            is wine    From mucus
                                     our Heads emerge
                                we lie face-up & laugh
                    at the Atomic sun
                                        sometimes
                                   we say     fungus O fungus!
