ventriloquist earth 2

One human life, a tear falling finitely

from ventriloquist earth, the stuttering

breath of solipsism chuntering about

war. A whale screams in the ocean,

a tear that briefly belongs to death, time

his hand puppet will not accord with

the umbilical cord of the false womb

of earth' s electric lights. From a distance

the moon moves the tides, an archetype

marooned is raised closer to the collective

mind of man, perhaps a supernatural injection

coming to fruition. A rocket lands on the moon,

the blindfold of history's tapestry falls from

the eyes of the world.

...time
his hand puppet will not accord with
the umbilical cord of the false womb
of earth' s electric lights.
