Limping Epiphany

Limping Epiphany

we can bend space and light and time
it’s easy enough

I had a lysergic epiphany one time
I was small, but my hand was big
my hand knew everything
how to write
and what kind of sex I wanted

my hand was a miracle machine
marching soldiers and an Einstein thumb
get a grip
get a grip on this epiphany

only the wise have blades in their hands
sabers of coincidence
and daggers of fate
bare bodkins and Bowie knives
rapiers with microchip decisions
the Claymore descends
a stiletto lubricated

Taurus scoffs
and Capricorn shudders
a souffle of galaxies
waits for the story of gods

space is dark as a shopping mall
with franchise solar systems
and coffee at the speed of light

can we emerge, preening like angels?
all chords resolve to latent rapture
Kurds and Way
just a minute
frozen like a fly in amber

It was only a while ago
I remember the day
not a leaf moved on a tree
it was a day for decisions.

we can bend space and light and time
it’s easy enough
the heart accelerates particles,
travels to the past and the future
a miracle in a muscle
it has to do with the beat
and the meat of perpetual motion
an hydraulic engine of emotion

if I had labia
they would be
continually
moist and swollen
anticipating
satori or at least
revelation

like a saint in bondage
a disciple of the fringe
god in my speedos
like an iPod full
of unknown jazz

we can bend space and light and time
it’s easy enough with slight brain tricks
the proper vegetable incantations and
a rapid internet connection bemused
we can bend space and light and time
