Elapsed time remaining
We live by wall-bound shadows,
Scraps of errant noise,
And a ticking, tocking, lorelei refrain.
Screw that. Come with me NOW,
Let's drop facades and clothing,
Savor foreign tongues:
Take golden breaths in, deep
Fill midnight wells with nectar.
When wanton, wind-blown sorrows come-
Drink fearless, everdeep, and taste
A fiery dervish bliss which gives no quarter.
And joy? I'll show you-
It's out there where we least expect it;
Hid beneath what look like rocks
With worms, and unburnt salamanders.
Why look for God?
You know for sure he's down there, too,
Still bare-ass-naked like a child.
What say?- Let's rush to join Him
Dip toes in moist dark loam.
There is not much elapsed time
