she lays on the floor
says "you got that far away look in your eye."
i say "i've been thinking about oil wells & cold wars,
table talk, & over sized cities incestuously crashing into each other. yes, i've been thinking about a transient jesus. i've been thinking about a transient jesus & i believe there are no more watchtowers. just pillars of giraffes tempting, flowing. tempting. flowing."

"tell me what you see."

"two angels staring. two angels staring back at me.
that's what i see."

we all got tired. tired of waiting & tired of choices
i wish, i wish, i wish i could be anywhere
but right here right now & see the blood red mooons
& galileo. Galileo!
Judas hanging from a tree,
tell me what you see?

"two angels staring. two angels staring back at me.
that's what i see."
