The False Monarchy
Swamps our mind in acid gold, 
Brewing in Merchants 

And their presumed worth; 
Stables upon the plateaus 
Drop gravel on beasts...

- - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Sphere of bold immense
Engraved in the corpse of love
Rest my constant sense! 

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

The prince bows to light, 
Of his own golden shadow, 
Lit by pious sight....

Of Earth he's abound
In glorious riches', mind, 
Under Verse's sound; 

His plaque of emerald 
In a noose above a throne, 
Thaws at the herald 

Of a patient child, 
Blessed before the brow of green! 
Ordain's froth and piled

From the commanded, 
No King, but a wanderer 
Of the burning dead! 

Like the Sun's bower, 
Above Justice's tower, 
The Prince is silent... 

- - - - - - - - - -

His repose to night

Is clouded in worships sheathe, 

The infinite light...

- - - - - - - - - 

The Hunter judges, 
Faun's perform in the glade of 
Eternal anguish! 

- - - - - - - - 

A Sun of Dust fades
Pale streams mumble at the waist; 
Eyes roll to the night. 

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

The False Monarchy
Swamps our mind in acid gold, 
Brewing in Merchants 

And their presumed worth; 
Stables upon the plateaus 
Drop gravel on beasts...

- - - - - - - - - - - - - -

A priest steals a vow 
And his nimble crosses bleed
On glints of gunfire.

- - - - - - - - -

A Godly fragment! - -
I found constancy in thought, 
His present of light.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

The thread binds to all; 
Absence is Opposition, 
All is Expression. 

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

In my creed of man, 
I ordained endless visions 
That no breath had laid. 

Never was grasped, the
Universe's breasts bathed in
Dark canals of thought. 

Eternity's mask, 
Untouched by experience, 
Blinked as the Sun's scale. 

Nature became God, 
Man thought the all powerful 
And I sought nothing.
