there is so much to life I feel

abstracted from because God is at best some

impossible unforgiving bastard

and we all at the mercy of this tyrant

I don't know how many more incarnations in the earth

before I can accept this tyranny for what it is

but I love consciousness  and to say alive I must

find a way to accept "Lawd' as the heartless consciousness

that is at the bottom of this existence

this cruel joke of love and mercy and grace and forgiveness

from which there is no escape

would I could symbolically cast these living horrors to imagination

as feeble and as broke as this miserable disgust

to create the tritest monsters the subconscious could respectably uphold
