Athimelbe 'ad in 'is head
an thinking heart
a word of the unresolved

his head had not
registered a notice of
he had not yet put to word

AS he traveled the world

As his day in travel
were bent to
follow each bend of the road
he had noticed and recorded with the recorder of records
for public view and notice
(and noticed also the pubic had a plain and obvious notice of)
for the records to have the bent road
in his town straightenned

And a crooked path had wound around his mental integrations
In 'is quiet glaces
Nagged at 'is heart
As if it had no source
but 'is heart a nagging one
as the air in his home town
a little heavier and wetter
than the rest of the places and towns his mind had ventured and heart had dreamed
and that nagged 'im also
in his knowing
as one man
could not alone straighten out
the bends in 'is life
if it included a bent public road

A nagging nagged person
as far as he knew
could tell a truth or lie
but he was always nagged

And had set off in his life
looking for a seduction
And had set off as many young men
left in an egnima
to contemplate how

to figure
from his young existence
a way of seduction
for a nagged figure he presented
in his passes

must not had been too perfect
and too clumbsy
without a professional atheletes
impress any if the town council and clergy 'ad signed and approved it

other wise he was just bent only on finding
and always failed
and his nagging nature
had become more a real
and substantial as could real estate
exist in the living industry

and financial appraisals its' root of existing

and could not find out and no one could say why

the town council
would not fix the bend in the hiway
of its' life passages
and world transit conductions

and became of high paramount importance to 'im
of world importance

that a mans casual seductions
exceed and add up no other way
than of a worldly importance
-could a towns men and council
accord inner changes
for a physical solution
to Athimelbe's social adjustment problems

and he didnt want nagg'em over it
'cause he didnt like seeing himself a nagger.


The world Althemelbe had constructed
was destinued always
as he perceived it
to be perceived as construction
as to draw suspicions
contrary only paint pictures
of an integrated
few seek disemble into parts
or suspect
a differet picture be construe d of
the same paint

How could it be different
if he nagged himself
from bother
and both bothered to
to bother those
not repair a bend
in a road
simply come to grow
as fixture in their minds

If a man says a whole world resist
and war with logic
to fix
'dere same beliefs
an include the tangeable
mechanics of 'is own built tools the conceptualizatin
in the ascents of mankind
wene meant and presented
absent of explanation
for their existance
So who give explanation
for the existence of a bend
less have to reassemble
the questioning motive

to a different picture
not centered true ly
aimed at any real truth
of any physical
or personal meaning
to centricity
or passing time

an extrardinary task
impossible problem
not reveal a new closet

every round and corner
less Athimelbes'
lend a tangeable sense
to their common senses
and fears
as material as the gemoetry of
a hiway bend had physically penetrated their adding thoughts
and generated reasoning
to live and breath a nearly
imperceptable twist
in their daily truths
not see what nagged who

a looming weight of hot headed air
secreted intangeable collisions
needed secrecy

as hot air
sees need for its existance

an all Athimelbe
could ascertain was a shape
of some bent kind
'ad been consumed ubiquitiously
in what was ate.
leave people acting so long
in an unlevel manner
as if nothng new normal be seen
or atape worm not digest a certain bend

so was all they
a same bend at one angle look like a
a same ebend they all walk an lived upon
an one look where they dont see or live at all

start see both ends

an' a reasonable thinking person
like Athimelbe
not find a middle road
for 'is intecourses

A middle migraton as a desending middle
grow of habit
and the fat of the land
they all only assume
and only shows in d' middle
the same no matter what the level
'till shoes lik elevators evolve instead
streets like in Rome

An Athimelbe though propose the town
change the name to Rome
for 'is own private joke
'an balance the book with a level
in 'is ne proposed garden of the saints
he'd of erected
rather than dated
center in the town square

An so it went with Athimelbe
his intercourses
were ones of great atheletic bslance
with a tree he could be up
on occasion
hide his head
like an ostrich
'an he ken after a while too
he 'ad noother choices
with his lady friends
all 'ad a need keep the same peace
'ad Athimelbe at start
questioning its' origins

Wherein then could a man if he 'ad such perceptions
be and live
but as tree dweller
with same meant mnaing he 'ad question of
lead him think of th eshape of thefood they all ate
after turning round the same bend
into "Rome's" town center afore he took his drive home.

'ad 'ad no way know of the state
of this situation
in the dark wooded trees
adjoin with the wind
in is life and world
his unconscious winds
the bent road
in "Rome"

an built a tree house
for 'is future to be bride
he 'ad not met yetalreay felt seucre with the thought
'ad whever had nagged 'im
in his daily present businesses
'an in 'is sleep
'ad left 'is mind
and he felt better'
Though any lady
always 'ad 'im cornered in a tree

'an did as
as the same as the "Romans"

thought it look the whole place always above 'an over 'is head
in a tree house
on the bent road

'an further
'ad never been to Rome either
and 'ad no way to know what they did
an' as he grew older had no curiosity
though the bent road by then
'ad actually sunk a little
and 'ad grown a little slanted
sunlight at day
'ad a little slit
passed through an opening in the highway
shown down over the vallies around
could see the road
where it now 'ad carried no traffic
and tuffs of grass and dirt
filterd a daly designed
projected in the outlined narrows
the better and lesser fertilities
of all the houses and families
where the field were fed

and somehow had no wish
not call himself a Roman
or visit Rome

and supposed they all did as he was doing
in "Rome"

'an ad decided
as long as he reside in the same corner
he'd not say either
about "Rome" or the town council

A very complex situation
that did not nagg at 'im at all
An unnoticed place of great heights
(an' he wanted keep it that way)
not ever say
or confront a conflict
he known exist anyways

wont fix the bend
no way out of the trees

a status quo
life he 'ad supposed all alike

an' in interest
no single profundity 'ad ever escaped 'im
livng in balance a bend
and earthend land
one million varigated narrows
never all line up alike
stand on a slant live in a tree
