Imprecatory Psalms (Pseudoscienza)

Insanity is an easy drug
Responsibly Disillusioned
Temporary measure of endurance
Take pictures dear disciple
He too will disappear soon

Maybe one day ask to borrow your neighbor’s wife
Illusion of the virgin bride’s fallen pride
So you can be born anew
Every excuse forgiven again
Bankrupt human souls

Awed by dusk
Black and Blue clouds match his eyes
Thrilled by flash fires and practical magic spells
Sometimes trade religion for illusion
And still alchemist were all failures in the end

Simple explanations never suffer the true nature of male logic
Simple desires often his downfall
Simple distractions cost his kingdoms
Typically rewarded
He smiles more as a matter of compliance

Never held in judgment by the wicked
Hold contempt for borrowed storms
This curse of false thunder
Sunday will pass with little reverence
Pock-marked pictures of a field give solace
Dreams of ordinary homes and comfort not known
She never gave much for you

Think this falling star extraordinary
Lines drawn, life and theft
Dirty shoes disappointment
Stomping out over produced protest songs and gloss signs of franchised anger
Tracking up Capital steps
Smiling speakers and photo ops for all
Angry America’s well financed grassroots movement

Holding the hardened corpse of a night moth
Spared from his life beating against the night light
And dramatics helping mask childhood secrets
Around well arranged lawn furniture set for three o’clock tea covered in winter’s snow
Father breathes cigarette filled air
As pigeons drink dirty pot-hole water
Inches from crushing wheels and scorching exhaust
He writes poetry on a coffee table, still life goes by

Man makes beautiful beasts
Unrepentant Industry’s murderous intent
In stores now while supplies last
As seen on TV
Results may vary
Check with a doctor before dying
Pay with cash at the door

Slumbering in a back alleyway
Midday Tuesday and you will not return to work
She comes down that river to kiss you
Poor girl’s eyes contemplate esthetics
Diddle Diddle’s cow jumped over a moon so full
Morning lover’s squabble
Or is that just the way cat’s fuck
Trusted despair
Life is silent when you think only in numbers

Still for her crickets sing
And the starfish knows nothing of rain
Weatherman’s fears realized
Irrelevance will complete us all some day
Held in cheap Chinese plastic savior shaped sanctity
Ill cast perfection
Father hear my sins
Appraise this defective soul

Adorned in well crafted hand grenades
Black steel, gold bullets, blank stares
His soldier’s smile
His people wave
They will all die
Cry alone, reality has danger in truth

He is not your father
Faith is expensive
About$29.95 a copy
Come back another time
They are out of stock today

Sipping cherry flavored nightshade tea
Wake up Grandfather!
Your mailman is calling
Parked at your front door
Behold his bag full of obligation

Haunted portrait
Forsaken summer scenes
Delinquent artist hide in steps traced by paint stained fingers
Brittle cat whisker brush
Each covered in dried pigment
Discussing brilliant personal crisis and European economic issues
His days have never been young

Your sugar bowl is empty
Lovers stand in concerned denial
Her hair dirty with nail shavings and arsenic

Comforting white tent pitched Church
Of untended canvass apostles
And holy men unredeemed
In fields where a Christ slumbered

Donations gathered by his elders
Blessed by thy name
Each dollar held in a wallet bound by children who will never know trust
Held close by a spider woven net
Made from rib bones and medicinal flowers

Whispering to heaven
On wings of the wicked Mayfly
This, my broken watch
12 more hours to live
