Indirectly

you were made from fixed nitrogen
implicit ideas
raiders attracted to the flames
culture is a knowledge relationship
the Divine Port, the Sublime Port
reservoirs of knowledge
game theory vs. just happy to be here
the older gay, the senior gay
culture, symbolic thought, language

the interesting 40-year old
the senior gay
the origins of symbolic thought
fish and fish hooks
a symbol that stood in for an entire culture
constrained meaning
Rich Dad, Everybody’s Uncle
with faith and trust and confidence
Dos Equis and Stella Artois

embryonic, the cosmic womb
the power to create life
the symbols of a culture
embrace complexity, embrace rapture
the upside-down triangle, the yoni
she’s you
they share the same genes
it turned into Minecraft
the gift of the earth

in competition for your niche
papercuts and Band-Aids
chocolate-covered chicken
purification, clarification
The Unstated
happiness is blue, blue in blue
to feel and to live forever
you’re on an iceberg, floating out to sea
between heaven and earth

Redeemed
and still, no one cares
saying goodbye to your younger self
completely buried under history

a light was on

Midsummer bonfire
release from an un-releasable world
what was lost and what was found
iron, industry, and immortality
gravity, acceleration, and calculus
the map contracts
species and superspecies
energy drinks and grenades
the cult of the vampire

gothic vampire god
The sad leg of the love triangle
how they are, how they should be
it’s difficult to express one’s feelings
it ended because it had to end
conversion and transubstantiation
I’m not here to be your hero
already the butt of the joke
the bug bites your earlobe

bodies of water and magical potency
a dead world at the bottom of a video game
leap several centuries in one bound
ancient tree
I want to know the Answer to the Question
Mother God
people are looking for the Answer
Mother Satan, Queen of Hell
underground vampire society

disc drives left behind, from another generation
a message from another civilization
the journey from created to creator
Pocky Challenge
Cancer’s solstice and Capricorn’s solstice
the myth of the bull
Mithraic goddess
one manuscript, from ancient Alexandria
the bug that bites inside your ear

watching the birds, on the telephone wire
long, useless crushes
how one feels
we passed each other, in another time
