Not Be Essence That Cannot Be



                   Wild-Woman And The Vale Of Bones


                                  not in that great
            matter    contained   the extreme
                             Star             the depraved
               guides      transforming     this process

                               the view point does not
    fear the taboo          all human
                            rose  made 
                            positive  once 
                            again is a 
                            turtle
                                           the old loving
     history         the spirit      what cannot be known?

                                                & by the power
       I lift          endlessly      I believe    the
                                    Spring and Autumn
                                    judgement
                                    Since      the current

            forces
           forces         these words              it is a
       return          .to the dirt.   extinction       no
                                                        no

                               not. to be.

                   what shows?
                   especially the beauty 
                   of the world     here & 
        now. The void.     the
                               R
                                 E
                                   al  Ity
                                              directed
             with the teachings
                                            mother & daughter
                                            of the earth

                    between heaven
                    you see the balanced
                    order

                                 And rotten bones.
