Just Another Standin’ In My Light

So, Rip Van Winkle: he, am I: awake: again: to find you people, still, all about the same ol’ same ol’: the riven children: raining down from the sky in Ukraine, buried bloody in the sands of Gaza, unseen and unknown and flung into the jungles of Uganda; and still you say, still you say, still you say, you are more than a murderous ape; and in this you lie, and you lie, and you lie, for what you are, is:

just another night
just another night
on the other side of life

oh bloodless clueless white boys
think it’s all camp
don’t, do you
death—pain—cruelty—end

no

I write along a single line: I never get off it. I said that you were never to kill anyone, and I meant it.

I said that you were never to kill anyone, and I meant it.

And I meant it.

I meant it.

And you kill and you kill and you kill and you lose and you lose and lose and you lose. You have all so lost. You are so already over. Eros uber Thanatos. Alpha unto Omega.

you froze my feelings
but that’s alright
and you’re standing in my light

Don’t you understand? I have arisen not from the dead but from the living. I am not a voice crying in the wilderness. There is no winter here. No dark. No despair. The lights are going on in my house. I shall not allow the President of the United States to enter here. There is no darkness anywhere. There are only sick little men who have turned away from the light. I have all my lights on. And it is my own face I see in the blazing windows of all the houses on earth.

—Kenneth Patchen

it’s just a kiss away
kiss away
kiss away

You’ll just kill, you ur-people, till your sick sad dick is exhausted, and will never rise again.

And then we’ll be there.

We who have already won.

We of love is lord of all.
