Origin Story

Be screamed the Lord
What cut the dark
Its thoughts’ knots
Pottered Its esophagus a
Dumb yawning sarcophagus
(Them living tomb
Warm unseen cancers)
Infiniplite in the way
A well vomits brack-
Black waters forth or
Hot rotten birth rings
Worm these diseases
Even before designing teeth
And greed the Lord
Bored the nightness
Clawed for Its image
And tore in the walls
Of the abyss to feel
Its fingernails smart
All in that horrid gasm
Of pandolorous grief
Complete pain brought life as
If pain were older
Than God

kind mathematics

a bad echo
so sickening it must
be mine – tortureful reverberation

an embarrassing moment
on videotape, eternified
very nice
thank you so much

missus god almighty
just one teensy question

in heaven, like
eternalated, heavenly infinity
isn’t there a high-on-up-there
probability of repeating

am i going to live
my life again-again
under the sun

can it just be
pretty please

can for once
the math not be
so super duper

life is a gift say thank you dammit

the buffalo
the baby
the king of the jews
i worship what i kill

i can almost smell the ocean
through the bleach

and at this
i take the greatest offense:
my life’s the second
half of a sentence
uttered by a pair of parents)

don’t worry child
i said don’t fucking worry

there’s no goddess of the bonobos
who punishes the chaste
and the onanist
and the barren

you don’t have to make
babies, bison, sense
none of it

but you don’t get
to not want to
