the astonished mirror

the date for the crucifixion was announced in advance
leaked from innermost circles
creating a mythical symbol
for rebellion with footnotes in the head of a hellion
martyr who founded a center in the name of
the magical mushroom
born in shit
they don’t forbid much
in the after-odor
after the illness all funny stuff is stomped
back into the ground
generating astrological diets for prostitutes
where laughter wines and dines
androgynes under a syzygy’s mystery
one face erased in the crowd is holding frenzied
hams for Zeus the new boss who needs
an immortal woman to unbarren involuntarily
with messiahs stuffed with schools
and laced up wounds
ecstacy typical of complimentary systems
that are freighted with impulsiveness
and baroque paisley attitudes but they are not
interested in your fears or orgasmic stepping stones
their concern is escape and it is madness and we know
it is so because it is sexual which leads to light
that dies out in a hurry
oh impulse to ask a question and mount the stage
of a sacrament:
eat me!
I think (in pictures)
and swallow the astonished mirror floating over my shoulder
