Bound by pipes

“History is an array of idiots, sociopaths, murderers and bores, punctuated with an occasional rational one – whose life is cut short.”

Empire bathed in fire
Each smile a grimace
Laughing by number
One semi-colon at a time

I can’t cotton to flames
To convey how Debt
Subjects itself to itself
Unquenchable diagram
Long face or miracle

These our islands
In which we rededicate space
All the more stuffed with Latin
Adorable Greek companions
Figments of fictive formulae
In the public professions
With less purchase on transitory life

Dear most-human Human
Who wiggles down runways
Who promenades
Dancing with the Ecclesiastics
The most pious or foreign
Colonials hitched to social ambition
To obscure privacy in sensational life

What trauma sleeps
In milder opinion
Mouth smashed
Distinction of noses
To sample the other’s blood

Inflexible rigor (circular saw)

Innocent of flesh
No nation
Under ceremony or novel vantage
No stronger ardor

Poured out of Christ
Useless ungodly plaything
Fleshy hand innocent of Ephesus
Impossible sensation

How each patriot spells
Appeasement equal to
Distress in another’s name
Borrowed religion walled up in words

Some gadfly connects
To Lucian’s law
To a collision of rock & coin
To citizens as capacitors

Running from the ancients
In consequence to their queen
Clerics raised a column and crossed the aisle
Each bishop whose scepter

Usurps the fancy apostates
Idol-loving judge innocent of repose
His need for love loves love
Polished and taxed to perfection

Morosely arraigned (the younger)

Compare the suppression of princes

The terror of seventeen
They exercised six and entertained the Stoics

Every primitive
Every single family

The abolition of beasts sanctioned
Another commune
Miraculous shrine
As Socrates prepared for war

Let us drink to victims
Take profit from the listing ship

Take the city and denounce the king
