Random Poem:

cassius 2

Twisted song of himself
Now hear Cassius in silent biding clock drippings
Hearts that are models for wristwatches
in timed beating
thu-thump thu-thump
tic-toc tic-toc
Will Fail
Hailing wind storms designed to crush and pummel
have never ceased to triumph over
Mechanical driving force – all men on slipping timelines
Drop off one by one or in thousands
Yet no difference
Maybe God’s ignorance (insolence)
Maybe Eternity’s universal inifinte continuity
Scientifically (by faith of truth of being) explain
Life Death Birth
None excuses for humanity and
Humanity’s beating Heart
