Not Be Essence That Cannot Be



                       The Victim Sings Freshly


          yield!  & tell
me counsel                   the form       of the right
   Star                    it comes by
      the wrathful        the hungry
                      killer         who is fulfilled

                              the pleasure       light-quick
              striking the black rock         the hallowed
          earth          it's rolling      from inside
                 our mind     body      everlasting
                           is perception
                                           I practise
               breathing     it is my mouth        that is 
         excellent         I believe this.

                                           walking in
                       kindness          what is good in me?
        the might of injected
                     Steam    I throw the knife
      in boldness   the Victim sings
                freshly  & gushes
                    water from his side

                                     what is hooking? 
                      where is    the deadly eye 
                 hiding        who conceals?

                                             a block on
           the crust     of the earth     is ready to flame
                matter sings to it!  Scolding earth!

                                    what belongs to the
           weasel?   fleet
                     foot & crying tongue.

                                         a cause is
              adventure          Salt formation
                            of a kiss

                                         terror Earth 
                                         & good fat duck 
                                         sniff geranium 
                                         & give a fuck —
             afore        we turn white.
