and the sun weilds mercy

but like a jet torch carried to high,

and the jets whip across its sight

and rockets leap like toads,

and the boys get out the maps

and pin-cuishon the moon,

old green cheese,

no life there but too much on earth:

our unwashed India boys

crosssing their legs,playing pipes,

starving with sucked in bellies,

watching the snakes volute

like beautiful women in the hungry air;

the rockets leap,

the rockets leap like hares,

clearing clump and dog

replacing out-dated bullets;

the Chineses still carve

in jade,quietly stuffing rice

into their hunger, a hunger

a thousand years old,

their muddy rivers moving with fire

and song, barges, houseboats

pushed by drifting poles

of waiting without wanting;

in Turkey they face the East

on their carpets

praying to a purple god

who smokes and laughs

and sticks fingers in their eyes

blinding them, as gods will do;

but the rockets are ready: peace is no longer,

for some reason,precious;

madness drifts like lily pads

on a pond circling senselessly;

the painters paint dipping

their reds and greens and yellows,

poets rhyme their lonliness,

musicians starve as always

and the novelists miss the mark,

but not the pelican , the gull;

pelicans dip and dive, rise,

shaking shocked half-dead

radioactive fish from their beaks;

indeed, indeed, the waters wash

the rocks with slime; and on wall st.

the market staggers like a lost drunk

looking for his key; ah,

this will be a good one,by God:

it will take us back to the

sabre-teeth, the winged monkey

scrabbling in pits over bits

of helmet, instrument and glass;

a lightning crashes across

the window and in a million rooms

lovers lie entwined and lost

and sick as peace;

the sky still breaks red and orange for the

painters-and for the lovers,

flowers open as they always have

opened but covered with thin dust

of rocket fuel and mushrooms,

poison mushrooms; it's a bad time,

a dog-sick time-curtain

act 3, standing room only,


by god,by somebody and something,

by rockets and generals and

leaders, by poets , doctors, comedians,

by manufacturers of soup

and biscuits, Janus-faced hucksters

of their own indexerity;

I can now see now the coal-slick

contanminated fields, a snail or 2,

bile, obsidian, a fish or 3

in the shallows, an obloquy of our

source and our sight.....

has this happend before? is history

a circle that catches itself by the tail,

a dream, a nightmare,

a general's dream, a presidents dream,

a dictators dream...

can't we awaken?

or are the forces of life greater than we are?

can't we awaken? must we foever,

dear freinds, die in our sleep?
