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 too)
for the records to have the bent road
in his town straightened

And a crooked path had wound around his mental integrations
In 'is quiet glances
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 enigma
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
award
impress any
only if the town council and clergy 'ad signed and approved it

otherwise
he was just bent only on finding
and always failed
and his nagging nature
had become more a real
appraisal
and substantial
as could real estate
exist in the living industry
and
financial appraisals
a real
estimate
of 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 the issue
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 not a towns men and council
accord inner changes
revelations
for a physical solution
to Athimelbe's social adjustment
problems


and he didn't want nagg'em over it
'cause he didnt like seeing himself a
nagger...

II

The world Althemelbe saw constructed
of life around him
was destined
always
as he perceived it
to be perceived as a construction
as to nuture suspicion
birth brotherhoods
only paint pictures
of integrated wholes
few seek dismantle for meaning
or
raise suspect
a differet picture
construe d of the same paint

What'd be different
a soul
nagged
from bother
and both bothered
to bother
to nag those
not repair a bend
in a road
or a nagging person
and a bent road
both simply come to grow
as fixture in their minds

If a man says a whole world resist
and war with logic
to fix an unequal upon
'dere same beliefs
an' include within the tangeables
and mechanics
of 'is own built tools ...


....Roads...at the conceptualization
in the ascents of mankind
were meant and presented
absent of explanation
for their existance
...who then
in the mechanics of his wars
give explanation
for the existance
maintenance
and nurturing
of a bend
less to have to reassemble
question innately
find incentive question
not exist before
in spoken word
or reflection

... draw a different picture
not centered
or true ly aimed
at any real truth
of a physical
or personal meaning
centric perspective
or historically
relevant
in the evolution of a town

Be an extrardinary task
impossible problem
not reveal a new closet
skeleton
every turn
Broaden a passage an'
unbend a thought
never raised conscious level
for thinking...

... every new round and corner

Less Athimelbes'
reasonings
come
lend a tangeable sense
to their common senses
and fears
as material as if
the materials of
a hiway bend had physically
penetrated their adding thoughts
and generated reasoning
to live and breath
a nearly
new imperceptable twist
in their daily truths
...start see what nagged who

a'mist a looming weight
of hot headed air
secreted intangeable collisions
needing 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 as if
a tape worm breed
not digest certain bends
in the oats
normally swallowed

Athimelbe had need
some swallow
lifes'
anewly'd
normal excreted abberations

and at his start
was all they alike looked an saw alike
a same bend at one angle
look like a
a same bend
they all walk an lived upon
an no one look
see elsewhere
where no soul
not seen
lives any places
they ain't visited at all

Persons start see light at both ends

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

A middle migraton
as a desending middle
grow of a habit
and the past fat of the land
as they all
unassuming
see only where d' nose points
looking
the same as all dere ups and downs
where life only shows in d' middle
the same anyways
no matter what the seeing level

'till shoes like elevators evolve
instead
streets like in Rome

An Athimelbe thought
propose the town
change the name to Rome
for 'is own private joke
'an balance the book with a level
instead a pen

in 'is new proposed
Rome city
"garden of the saints"
he'd of erected
rather than dated
planted a center in the town square

An so it went with Athimelbe
his intercourses
were ones of great atheletic balance
a tree he could always be up
on occasion
hide his head
like an ostrich
'an he'd like it after a while too
For he 'ad no other choices
with his lady friends
as all 'ad a need keep the same peace
'ad Athimelbe at start
questioning 'is origins

Wherein then could a man
if he 'ad such perceptions
be and live
but as a tree dweller
lived and breathed
not draw him attention
with a same appearing
past meant meaning
he 'ad question of
(Life always alooks alike as it
is
'til it grows the same as the eye sees)

All dis lead him think
of the bent shape
of the food they all ate
one day 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 his situation
in the dark wooded trees
adjoin with the wind
in is life and world
enigmas
his unconscious winds
and the bent road
in "Rome"

an built a tree house
for 'is future to be bride
he 'ad not met yet
already felt secure with this thought
an 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 did
as all did
the same as the "Romans"
did
In Athimelbes' town

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

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

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

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

'an ad decided
as long as he reside in the same corner
in a tree
he'd not tell his woman either
about "Rome" or the town council

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

wont fix the bend
he no way out of the trees
nagged or otherwise
an' his heart ad
anew daily rest

a status quo life
he 'ad supposed alike for all
when he look in any of
the eyes he pass
'an still known
they all land on a bend
and he instead bent
be a roman in Rome land instead

an' in interest
no single profundity 'ad ever escaped 'im
living in balance a bend
and earthened land
one million varigated narrows
never all line up alike
stand on a slant
see the sun through a slit
or live in a tree

An' Athimelbe was happy
as any a person seek an inner peace
as a greener grass exist only
should red grasses
be seen only as green
salt water be only in inland lakes
one plus one equal three
not only when
he held and played
all the cards
in 'is own home town
at the only existing apex
could he logically know
of his highs and lows
and same always level views
of all the busy roaming romans
landed any land
air or sea
Was always a being sea of green
a seeing ship and holding of green

Captain of the hold
hold of the captain
head of the household
hold of the house head
of a world latrine
just always continue on
on its'own
of its' somehow
own self design
of hold
heads
houses

an irrelevancy
other than it just
had always go on
and still did go on
latrines
or bars of gold
that he had no interest say
or fall from his tree

A beholder
of magnificense
magnified
scents, sense and cents
riches...
...a sunlighted slit
of a bent an' slanted road
had been simply placed
STRAIGHT and learned
in 'is
UNBENDING hand
