Random Poem:

Ist lesson of the oracle
unknown

Necessity grabs you in a dream
 1
And squeezes you into an avocado salad
 2
Only the pure is real
 3
                but we must exist
 4
With the dross of this world
 5
 
 
The full moon drags you out, howling
 6
From your dull and maniac routine
 7
cup well river rain
 8
                the moisture in you eye
 9
what have these in common?
 10
 
 
Then your loins boil under some invisible flame
 11
A vessel you are emptiness containing all things
 12
Cold spider-web time
 13
                Delicate as rain drops glinting
 14
To betray the pane
 15
 
 
When will you discover the power
 16
To not know?
 17
A paper cup floats
 18
                on the lake, turns into a crane
 19
and flies away
 20
