the light in the sky
i’ve stumbled upon a new world meditating at the edge of the sea the keys of life reside in their right place as the flume washes over me it points west inward like a triangle extinguishing its own reflection there is presence of another life form i follow this beam of light that anchors in from the sky piercing the clouds that surround it like globs of paint protruding off a canvas i am the center everything is the center the calm warm breath of life unseen but heard felt like a quiet sneeze a diaphanous veil the diamond is the larger geometrical shape bent by thought how precious it is and pretends to be though i notice none in my immediate vicinity only spectacular nature uninvolved in itself these wild thoughts nonetheless carry-through hardening and burying themselves to be retrieved at some other time that's broken some other point when your heart shatters into a thousand pieces and all you know is suffering oh yes it or they or whatever this is pretends very well i do however notice smaller more apparent participants between the pleading façades triangles that reproduce more triangles i fit inside them like a box i am the box i have been traveling on foot for a year searching for something for anything to bring me closer and take me farther from a world i once knew and a world that once knew me but have they noticed i am from this other time this other place parallel stuck by earthly chains marauded by the sick and tortured helpless pleading bent to his knees for god human life is a diamond we are triangles upon these trials i have written and cut and written more advancing like space meat equations but strangely this paranormal advancement on the existence dilemma inadvertently makes you less and makes you feel less than that it doesn’t improve your emission it doesn’t make you better not kinder not more evolved definitely not braver it only teaches that learning and knowing less might be more relevant to all of it and knowledge has two paths that are drastically opposed and lastly having predictions makes you that much more predictable wisdom is learned by the symphony of the turtle not the conductor in the shark i’m hoping to find answers to who i am i have forgotten this wild assumption i have been lost in this wilderness for some time now and the more you see the more you travel the more you tend inward to understand that knowing yourself has little to do with who you think you are or anything relevant to anything you for that matter this light appears to be dividing the sky and splitting the earth perhaps the two are communicating the future is here in fangs of binary starlight that beams down in phantom florescence an unstoppable force mapping intellect of the new world only to be seen through foresight by the eyes of few the dream is no longer just a dream it is what is ahead i am alone to see this damned and enlightened by the digital hieroglyphs subscripted on the insides of the walls scrying our destiny telling secrets only gods could hear and secrets only gods should hear i am silent as the earth shatters imprisoned by the diamond by LORIN DREXLER
