Portrait of Shiva as 1,500 Terabytes of Genetic Code

Wikipedia Poem, No. 647

nottabe.jpg

“different animals in the same ecosystem pick up on different environmental signals”

diction of distraction far away real
but exploding from fiction resource scarcity
sacrifice in the newsroom what a thrill to disappear
into the lush terrarium of cum dribbled into a kleenex

that warm dark drunk feeling of being a white male in total control
far away but also exploding to simulate the umwelt
what has been dumped into the smell of vacation at the
colossi of memnon life’s unrecognizable terrarium of cum

dribbled into the kleenex those eye glasses look real expensive
one’s unique genetic code disappears into the far away flush
jail broken to simulate pain and sacrifice the smell
of resource scarcity like scarification in the newsroom

what a thrill to create from vivisected tissue those colossi look
so expensive beside wrecked kleenex flushed into a cum soaked
terrarium into one’s unique genetic code disappears far away
shiva real fricative expensive controls resource scarcity

sacrifice is that no-feeling of being black out drunk
in god’s lush terrarium with cum spurting into the newsroom
any newsroom really what a cheap trick the adrenaline
what a thrill to be undervalued and overperform

“What can I do to myself? Bones / and dusty skin. Heavy eyes twisted / between the adequate thighs of all / humanity (a little h), strumming my head / for a living. Bankrupt utopia sez tell me / no utopias. I will not listen. (Except the raw wind / makes the hero’s eyes close, and the tears that come out / are real.” Amiri Baraka, 1964

Warm

warm we link arms before the brawl breaks our ranks
we touch again     ineffectual   fist to ineffectual face
we are touched again to be peeled apart    sprayed 
toward sobbing   and held again in rapturous pain   do you remember
now   singing by torchlight?   do you remember the strange sounds
of which we are capable?   the moan the mutter
the laugh around campfire and when campfires tamp
and glow   and our bodies   just cool of a blister
kind and momentary   sister to sister
brother to brother   all else like a staircase rises up
or helps us descend   in time
it is a struggle   to keep cool   to fight with
one's own fire   the necessary stoke and recoil.
