Or so we hope ...

and now ladies and gentlemen ...

Seeing You Believe

.. inception;

at least you could have
showered with affection
the one true unit that
could make a difference
in this God forsaken relic
of a religious life.
what a joke...
you sacrificed everything
and gained only confusion ...

what an ass.


infraction upon
infraction, you pile up
another distraction,
all the while noticing
you haven't got a clue.

the best of them.
you launch into
another tirade of
meaningless commentary.

- open your eyes.


sanctimonious bastard
that you are -
you threw away
the best years of your life
striving for something
you could never


the first thing that you noticed
about me is the last thing
you expected to see,
some seepage at my breast.
you, the proud male
never expected to find yourself
confronted by the matriarch.

Did you ...?


suffering, you free me
from the baleful act
of watching late night tv.


busted liver

how much

you looked at me
with those big brown eyes.
and all to them
my nice surprise

validate art arbitrarily

discount whatever you like

consciously not-know

awareness as a detriment

distrust yourself

stop thinking

without resorting to
consciousness as a crutch.

give up your
artistic rights

remain indefinite

hide obscurity

ignore relationships

oppose improvement

posit unconscious
double standards

wound with
aesthetic intent


(can you believe it?
this is the shit one picks up in art schools
as one moves into claiming
one's own intrinsic creative power.)


I look them right in the eye.

and I say "I claim it!"



"I am the one who has been hated everywhere.

I am the one whom they call Law,
and you have called lawlessness.

I am the one whom you have pursued,
And I am the one who has been seized.

I am the one whom you have scattered,
and you have gathered me together.

I am the one before whom you have been ashamed,
and you have been shameless to me.

I am she who does not keep festival,
and I am she whose festivals are many.

I, I am godless,
and I am the one whose God is great.

I am the one whom you have reflected upon,
and you have scorned me.

I am unlearned,
and they learn from me ..."
