Wikipedia Poem, No. 755

go soul the body’s guest upon a thankless errand fear not to touch the best the truth shall be thy warrant go since i needs must die and give the world the lie say to the court it glows and shines like rotten wood say to the church it shows what’s good and doth no good if church and court reply then give them both the lie tell potentates they live acting by others’ action not loved unless they give not strong but by a faction if potentates reply give potentates the lie tell men of high condition that manage the estate their purpose is ambition their practice only hate and if they once reply then give them all the lie tell them that brave it most they beg for more by spending who in their greatest cost seek nothing but commending and if they make reply then give them all the lie tell zeal it wants devotion tell love it is but lust tell time it is but motion tell flesh it is but dust and wish them not reply for thou must give the lie tell age it daily wasteth tell honor how it alters tell beauty how she blasteth tell favor how it falters and as they shall reply give every one the lie tell wit how much it wrangles in tickle points of niceness tell wisdom she entangles herself in overwiseness and when they do reply straight give them both the lie tell physic of her boldness tell skill it is pretension tell charity of coldness tell law it is contention and as they do reply so give them still the lie tell fortune of her blindness tell nature of decay tell friendship of unkindness tell justice of delay and if they will reply then give them all the lie tell arts they have no soundness but vary by esteeming tell schools they want profoundness and stand too much on seeming if arts and schools reply give arts and schools the lie tell faith it’s fled the city tell how the country erreth tell manhood shakes off pity tell virtue least preferreth and if they do reply spare not to give the lie so when thou hast as i commanded thee done blabbing although to give the lie deserves no less than stabbing stab at thee he that will no stab the soul can kill

Charles IX medal commemorating the St. Bartholomew’s massacre. 1572

int has served me well
served silently though i
find some small satisfaction
of rain and it still rains

so, here: looking is no thinking
some bundle of typeerrors refuses multiplication
sequence-thinking iterates
of critique since said with still promise
to never despise all this thingyness
already the objects i know think too much
disappoint people in counting customers
know their way around! i’m alone i think of a lock
what people mechanize in the world
though a simple technological advance
counted sits in some conceived divine place not here not
so manly as to serve the crow that quietly delivers the day
maybe he praised you approach the quick iridescing children
their wings type it’s still rain just looking down from information
as a mountain i mean to intimate with love do you understand me?
i find behavior confidant and events undivine unlikely
a variety of typeerrors bloom into cheap aluminum
keys suddenly things are meant to click and begin
and do begin in fact without a single int
