"Mes de los Muertos"

4 Days Later

By Mike Zone

4 Days later

I meant to say a lot of things
a heart of lightness
in the illumination of being
traveling from the empire
toward the diamond river
which does not trap us
into oblivion in desolation
but into that wild crazy eternity
the future -- a journey from empire
and fragmentation
to cooperation
there are no borders
there are no nations
looking at factories past -- passed into abandonment
lavish living spaces -- for spoiled children
broken wage slaves -- servants to them young bones
a sharper more spoiled ego-voodoo dumbshow
of what comes before
with a pack of self-righteousness -- chastising
children's crusade
but what to do is the lack of being
imprisoned in it all
see the brain-damage as it is
nature in contrast to grotesque mindscape fantastique ...
the circus of it all
being of no value
when we're all meant to love even in the cruelest of fashions
and just love
can be a place called "hell"
isn't "heaven" just as much
underneath the gilded poison
at the bottom of it all?
it's putrid bubblegum pop anxiety showmanship
where somewhere along the middle
we realize
there doesn't need to be an end
or beginning
of it all
and how wonderful the middle is this constantly manifolding saga
of stardust creatures -- touching time and space
in the universal mind
where every atom can be a haven
and harmony
is just the state
of it all
