I now return you to your regularly scheduled activity

you're probably tired of my poisonously vatic mode
but so am I

besides I must serve--God demands that I serve--
but when I try

to serve I'm prevented from then damned for not serving--
my intent is good but that doesn't matter--

and perhaps I shouldn't have bothered writing
since karma demanded a redress of wrongs

that precluded words from being my means
of service--or did I just evade my purpose

with heavy-duty self-mythologizing?--
with all the harm irreparably done

I'll leave for a bit--or for good--drop a line or not--
I don't know--I just going off to find

what the hell it is God wants me to do...
