Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

Happy Holidays


you must leave the street
i will distract the buildings
until you are a safe distance away
(just when that is no one knows)

and with that we departed
looking back only briefly
then fleeing across the river to
the mountains in the east

winter was cold
and despair was colder

Formal Wear


in winter stars are dreams
above the strangest worlds
the trees attend in silence
and wear their frozen pearls

Happy Holidays from DNA Central




You know Tammuz and Mithras
Dionysus and Odin
Attis and Horus
And the horse you rode in on
But dare you recall
The most famous team of them all?

Santa and Baby Jesus
Came to cure the solstice blues
Worked on their act in Egypt
On the Nile Carnival Cruise

All of the other saviors
Used to laugh and call them dips
They mocked dear Santa/Jesus
And tried to kick them off the ship

Then one shoddy news network
Had their anchor cry
"Santa/Jesus, you're so white
Like the stars that shine at night"

Then all the gods embraced them
And scraped some samples of their skin
Santa and Baby Jesus
What's up with all that melanin?
Seriously, what's up with all that melanin?

Hiking With Archetypes


follow me to the hollow in back
follow me inside of the crack
winter is coming, it's already here
follow me and you'll disappear

Promises, Promises


just out of your view
magnificent mysteries
revealed to no one
