Sixty twin sized medieval truths

and forty dark and mysterious middle aged reclusives

made a piece of pie


ten homemakers

  forty bankers

and a round  eliptical watchmaker

baked a pardoned piece of  Y's

  for  the cake maker C's

      who to please?

         a truth he seeks

         or a seeker of truths

The maker of a lying bed

   whispers word of love

    doves of peace

     in the middle times 

    'tween  a'laying of the law 

    an a book of legal layings

Either please a truth as if a self

or self a truth 

   If  to either please the truth or the self

   or to  please the truth and the self     

To make the self true

One in the same


    words lended to a' build'a' fold

       a' wallet nature in a green bundle deal package

         make men of all things

           for his own ill-'

                          legal' laying

as a measure of all things 

      a fat billfold


goes up and down

back and forth

with no gasoline 

gasoline he used  to refine it's leather

who'd a know the better 

   if he the sole and only measure  

     speak his mind 

        of all the kinds      

must be he is the measure of kinds

and why he calls a foot a foot

 as if he bears the only foot


  An I

   an eye

    as if he is the only one

      that sees

          the only reflection

               as a measure mirrors

                 is not mirrored from

                  what ever reflects in the shadows


              "only the shadows' nose  knows'

           Where he  steps  upon his own measured air


            Only the shadows nose a' line in the spaces

                rereflect a' mid-



                         'tween the self and the else

             as Elsewise rereflected fear
