An American Prayer/ Hour For Magic/ Freedom Exists/ A Feast of Friends

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Do you know the warm progress

under the stars?

 

Do you know we exist?

 

Have you forgotten the keys

to the kingdom

 

Have you been borne yet

& are you alive?

 

Let's reinvent the gods, all teh myths

of the ages

 

Celebrate symbols from deep elder forests

 

[Have you forgotten the lessons

of the ancient war]

 

We need great golden copulations

 

The fathers are cackling in trees

of the forest

 

Our mother is dead in the sea

 

Do you know we are being led to

slaughters by placid admirals

 

& that fat slow generals are getting

obscene on young blood

 

Do you know we are ruled by T.V.

 

The moon is dry blood beast

 

Guerrilla bands are rolling numbers

in the next block of green vine

 

amassing for warfare on innocent

herdsman who are just dying

 

O great creator of being

 

grant us one more hour to

perform our art

& perfect our lives

 

The moths & atheists are doubly divine

& dying

 

We live, we die

& death not ends it

 

Journey we more into the

Nightmare

Cling to life

Our passion'd flower

 

Cling to Cunts & cocks

of despair

 

We got our final vision

by clap

 

Columbus groin got

filled w/green death

 

(I touched her thigh

& death smiled)

 

We have assembled inside this ancient

& insane theatre

 

To propagate our lust for life

& flee the swarming wisdom

of the streets

 

The barns are stormed

 

The windows kept

 

& only one of all the rest

 

To dance & save us

 

W/the divine mockery

of words

 

Music inflames temperament

 

(When the true King's murderers

 

are allowed to roam free

 

a 1000 Magicians arise in the land)

 

Where are the feasts

 

we are promised

 

Where is the wine

The New Wine

(dying on the vine)

resident mockery

give us an hour for magic

We of the purple glove

We of the starling flight

& velvet hour

We of arabic pleasures's breed

We of sundome & the night

 

Give us a creed

 

To believe

 

A nightr of lust

 

Give us trust in

 

The Night

 

Give of color

 

hundred hues

 

a rich mandala

 

for me & for you

 

& for your silky

 

pillowed house

 

a head, wisdom

 

& a bed

 

Troubled decree

 

Resident mockery

 

has claimed thee

 

We used to believe

 

in the good old days

 

We still receive

 

In little ways

 

The things of Kindness

 

& unsporting brow

 

Forget & allow

 

Did you know freedom exists

in school books

 

Did you know madmen are

running our prisons

 

w/in a jail, w/in a gaol

w/in a white free protestant

maelstrom

 

We're perched headlong

on the edge of boredom

 

We're reaching for death

on the end of a candle

 

We're trying for something

that's already found us

 

Wow, I'm sick of doubt

Live in the light of certain

south

 

Cruel bindings

 

The sevants have the power

 

dog-men & their mean women

pulling poor blankets over

our sailors

 

I'm sick of dour faces

Starong at me from the T.V.

 

Tower, I want roses in

my garden bower; dig?

 

Royal babies, rubies

must now replace aborted

 

Strangers in the mud

 

These mutants, blood-meal

for the plant that's plowed

they are waiting to take us into

the severed garden

 

Do you know how pale & wanton thrillful

comes death on a stranger hour

unannounced, unplanned for

 

like a scaring over-friendly guest you've

brought to bed

 

Death makes angels of us all

& gives us wings

where we had shoulders

smooth as raven's

claws

 

No more money, no more fancy dress

This other kingdom seems by far the best

until its other jaw reveals incest

& loose obedience to a vegetable law

 

I will not go

Prefer a feast of friends

To the Giant family
