"A snowflake in the burning fall"



The same skull grins

Beneath all skins


Struggling for meaning searching the keening

Of an obese culture starving to death

With an obscene vulture sucking its breath


Seeing my surroundings falling slowly

I catch on my tongue one pure and holy

Snowflake in the middle of the burning


I can feel my heart my soul returning

The hour is late I find myself in Rome

An empire falls as I rise: going home


The same skull grins beneath all skins

The same Christ died and rose for sins

Before behind and after all


A snowflake in the burning fall

Well. I must say. Erin puts quite a take on this. Which I shall have to think on for a bit or two. But you provoked it. So. All homage to you, milord. God. Thank you for giving me the way to use words. (I'm thanking God, Stevie.) But you. Like me. Are his/her servants. So all's cool. Don't you think? I wish Erin would comment on my "stuff" more. Oh well. Obviously, I do nothing for her. Doesn't matter. I'm barely hanging in on this thread. I'm just observing what's happening. All this "uptightness" about a lot of stuff. I've left it all behind me. And you all at AD helped me to see it. Now. I don't know anything anymore. I guess that's a cleansing. Well. For some reason. I had to use my friend Stevies, poem to write all of this. But I write it in sorrow, in loss, in love, and as the night swallows all, I can only hope that the light of dawn will make me feel like "rebooting." You're all good friends. Thank you, Stevie. Love, peace, and solidarity, as you always like to say (and it does mean a lot if you buy into it),

A lovely, introspective Poet's view of a Word of power, Steven. I always felt uncomfortable eating 'flesh', but, eating a snowflake, or a moon, I can appreciate.
