frigid waters

if it had, or it hadn’t
if it did, or it didn’t
flat and flattened
a blank slate, from nowhere
the eight riders of Gemini
history is not a stale and dead enterprise
The gifts of wandering stars, and the magi
a soft, half merger for some dye businesses
a circuit, between emanations of light

what’s there and what isn’t
contradictions and doublespeak
living underground, and then finally seeing the sun
the floodgates are open, parting the Red Sea
the last terrible, bitter roots, are finally weeded
ground down and ground out
legends of the giants and djinn
paganism, and the ancient Amber Road
it did and it didn’t

out of basements, and primeval forests
the migration of Eurasians, off of the Steppe
prehistoric fire giants and volcanoes
hidden in the oldest part of Europe
spirits and cities – a world on the moon
thunderous Perun, Iupiter and Indra
there and not there
feel like an out-of-place alien, on earth
leftovers, from the future

Prometheus and the phoenix; light, and fire
the reemergence of real feelings
a great Angel, at the Edge, in the bright light
the secret of Central Asia and the Steppe
an inadequate ideology
warm sea and lush land
when the continents were in unusual places
a tranquil world, shrouded in falling rain
ellipses and uncertainty

put purpose into practice
not a watch, but a Band-Aid
peer over the edge, into a dark grove
it is and it isn’t

the sky over the sea

left to drift gently
R E S T
the rain at night
pressed into new shapes
Stuck Between Worlds
a copy of a god
the world we made
to catch a badger
climbing the Tree of Life

Empty, like the Sky
Scraped from the bottom
A new standalone species
The Snake that Bites the Roots of the Tree
Angels from the Ring of Fire
Evolved completely and totally
Cellphone external cyberbrain
The New Nonsense
A Quantum World of Everything

The Color of the Sky When We Broke Up
The shapes of human minds
Identity and connection
Immortality Code
Fighter jets vs. Angels
The New Life of a higher species
Theoretical beings of another world
Transmutation Energy pool
path through a hyper-networked cloud

In Defense of Identity
Fierce god, Glorious Nobody
Your Genes are Trash
bitcoin oligarchy
Caretaker of Empires
Primordial pool of memory goop
A Personality That is Thin
The Eye of Regeneration
First to evolve, Last to be discovered

Jacob’s ladder of evolution
Ripped the Temple Veil in two
International Mana Pool
Remote Hypothesis
