The Last 100 Days of the Presidency of Barack Obama
Gold Gold Gold
My eyes are filled, my eyelids are covered, my lips:
What is inside is outside. I shine from within the deepest parts!
I thought I knew Jerusalem. Did not.
My tools are so minimal, the expanse is so large.
The Lord’s Alphabet so tangled up in love.
The muscle of worship is a divine one.
It lifts pen and heart. Novitiate Christian, Jew or Muslim
It is best I shut up now. Cleave heart, soul and tissue
To the flow and presence of gold in our midst.
We are about to be taken.
Sorry to be so “undevilish” on Halloween. When I went out from my hotel this morning, a few steps down the street the paparazzi, cameras in hand were waiting for Anthony Weiner – the sex scandal ridden former New York City Congressman - to appear out of his local apartment. “He’s got some explaining to do,” says one. Ah, the media, the new version of the Grand Inquisitor! Can we get this Election over and get back to the labors of getting to real gold?? Enough of these negative folks. Like ecocide they are out to ruin everything that grows.
