Locked behind the Veil

fluffing the edges
what was lost at Santorini
sea lane veins in the Dardanelles
lost secrets of Minoan Knossos
forgotten mysteries of history
just another pig in the sty
just more tears to cry
poverty of thinking
from euphoria comes clarity

and suddenly the fog lifted
listening to the rain, fall at night
summer beach wind
live your life out loud
bail out and fail out
blackening, reddening, whitening
the handsome blue, of the evening
the creation of god
angels are, by definition, fiery

late-night rain wind
New Wave mumbling
broke free of the body
see love, at the bottom of a wine glass
the rush and the tide of history
sci-fi future and fantasy past
summoning summer emotions
the limits of the human entity
reworked back to “god”

still asking for worth and approval
god of the rain wind
One star, one heavenly city
digital past; only one future
met your future self already
contradictory feedback loop
the origin of the Indo-Europeans
lost to prehistory and the early earth
still searching for the Answer

loneliness and strangers
what was known – and then un-known
abandoned by history
one thunderclap, racing through time

second memory

as useful as the 10 o’clock news
elephant bread
circumscribe, routinize
Bad Advice Eonni
the immortals of your world
Invaders of Eden
the AWPer
Thousand-year-old sage
Empty B Tray

fake, dummy accounts
Midsummer’s night
Geography Hero
it’s the attack of the ex
sci-fi yuri manga
the Answer is in the Question
fast-forwarding through history
potato sauce
Retribution

quickened into one giant thunderclap
what was lost and what was found
AWPed to death
viruses and livestock
inexorable Answer, intractable Question
primordial Eldritch squid god
flashbang city
the wrath of heroes
fade away, like the stars, at dawn

reloading in the scope
selling convenience
blue-water cargo cult
societies racing into tomorrow
still stuck in the ’90s
from Constantinople to Venice
bouncing around in history
King Solomon could see the future
nade the smoke
