Getting Over Time

Like the one walking in light
How long does a man spend dying
or waiting for Godot?;
A sin against the spirit cannot be forgiven.

Cast thy speckled goats overboard
and get closer to the fire,
Money is just a five letter word;
Integrated indifference is improbable
to obtain figuratively.

Subterranean corridors of collective dreams
cannot be accessed by mere Christianity
Where anarchy is bound;
Stop it, I can’t do that…said the black and white rainbow
To the chocolate soldiers, before he disappeared
Into a colour TV circa 1984.

The boatman calls nobody happy
before his second death
By how he drowns to live for himself
A man becomes known;
The androynous one is given three names
’less he wishes to be the Anonymous
And never change uni-forms again.

Waiting for the everlasting man of Timbuctoo,
The slow boat to China
in anchored down in Anchorage.
Time does not go on forever
because infinity is merely a bridge
to much bigger things;
Let us possess the stone of Soleiman
Cornered but not conquered.

Crowded faces of death
bury the ragamuffins into
Crumbling cookies and then
release to rise; The merchant
of Venice was prudent enough
He sold his goods and bought
the single pearl for his trust.

The next generation’s substitute for
Coca Cola and the Book of Ruth:
A humping of the lip,
And a prayer in winter’s ‘hood;
Adam’s lump of it is timed
to get her back to Gether.

Of the horsemen and puer aeternus
I do acknowledge random Acts…
Whilst on holiday in Rhodesia
And under local anesthetic;
the distant Trojans never injured me.

When at last the trombone calls to alarm,
Voluntarily playing ping pong
’gainst Ying and Ying, a pointless drill
Unless your partner is Adam Smith;
the dance of the round cross is an Arabian fling.

In a Leonard Cohen after-life
Kiss goodbye to the purple land.
Know what you have in front of you
And what is hidden will be revealed,
but at first you must zig-zag the left field.

For the love(storge) of god,
the ground root of all Eves
But what does it mean to say “for ever”?;
Like a palm shoot who’s dates dropped
around it…
