OLD TIME SHUFFLE ~
SHAMAN DRUMMER ~
HAVING EMERGED OUT OF OBLIVION ~
ISN'T THIS THE YEAR, OF ANY YEARS,
the past 70 years, to be reading and viewing
again, the life and dream paintings of
Haven't you felt like someone,
maybe an evil monkey,
has been sticking a sharp stick up your ass. . .
or else a reptile is wrapped with a very long
tail around your neck, and it isn't
with comfort. . .you're a pushing-self
inside a large wheel perforated with nails. . .
later, two creeps that look like lizards in steel
helmets are holding you upside down,
bare-assed, on the edge of some funnel. . .
or is that you with a spike
driven clean through your head?
Closeby, there's a guy walking, barely,
with his head locked in a saucer —
you're always naked, filthy, and a
mysterious woman wearing a veil
is riding behind you on a platypus.
Of course she is.
A farrier is shoeing both a naked woman
and a naked man with the farrier's
open fire pit flaring and mighty
off the fuel of a torched corpse. . .
there's an entire
village of people swimming ahead
of you and most are drowning in the
swamp, or is it the waste of centuries?
The color of the pond or lake or river or ocean
doesn't look good —
— we've been
except we haven't.
The bonfires ahead?
Set by the grinning imbecile in charge.
