i want to know people who know god

but our instruments assure his exit-
quiet, loud, inevitable.

a roar in the streets, explosion, signs
or the satellite lying quietly across the ocean
the strange sky making martyrs of mute ships.

if we're meant a return, I believe,
there will come fog and we press ourselves
through voices like old forests until we're together.

but the spirit? what do we know about weightlessness
in a dimension polluted with gravity?

a beleaguered preacher says 'have you ever loved us'
and the audience erupts.

when god doesn't answer i look for you
in a liquor store that burned down last year
Gravity, satellite, god, death... fucking words have kept me awake for 10 years.

Mostly eye-talian art movement concerned with violently engineering a dissolution of the border tween art and life. Also obsessed with contemporary and disgusted by the classic.

Bunch of crazy Italians and a few Russians basically.

It's also apparently some kind of retarded, Heaven's Gate style religion these days.

Your words just go round and round and round in my head. Very frustrating, but sometimes... it feels like I'm getting somewhere.

These lines are delicious. All the lines are delicious, and they make me want to write. Right now. Which is a bad thing, because I need to study for biology but I'm here reading your poems. I regret nothing.
