i very suddenly knew what i already knew: all at once and without doubts
i've crawled out of the edge of the earth
to make breakfast.
i've got big plans for my next life
which i'm going to be living early
while i'm still here
just in case
someone taught me a trick
some weeks ago:
imagine there is a snake curled in your sacrum.
a white snake of light.
a bright bit of matter peacefully floating-
nonsense and rainbows
fluff and fucking pigshit,
i mean, i'll smile but
clench your arse and draw the snake up your spine.
the earth is mostly nothing
sitting in an even bigger nothing
wondering why no one visits
ergo, i am mostly nothing
the snake i imagined was...
full of blind menace
a real world-eater
a nasty piece of work
clench your chest and draw the snake up your spine
the snake i think was laughing
why so shadowy?
its not a god fuckin dick child
you want all the colour
and it all cancels out-
i will give you your knowledge,
give you your desires
it reached its tongue lazily to the tip of my brain
