Portion of Boundlessness
O substitute fruit purees in oversized heart, 
massacres of indigenous in Tabasco Mexico, 
the oil steel industry structure, 
an American Institution 
like the Peace Corps or Boy Scouts, 

Voodoo is the object of a life’s endeavor; 
for Russian aristocrats could never 
comprehend the primitive language 
of Aboriginal Japanese, and 
female warriors of ancient Scythia, 
and Punjab, and Kashmir, 
and amber shadows of the pantry, 

original understanding 
protoplasm mind 

Inferior conviction ameliorating 
post-modern facade, the 
breath of Artaxerxes was 
notoriously foul, fleeing of 
the spherical mass contained 
3,000 oxen, accused of being 
Basque terrorists, 

He attacks the world with Spanish Bilbo, 
annihilating organs lacking a 
corresponding mirror image, 

his name is Symmetry, 

I hope to escape him— 
by flourishing into invulnerable vegetation, 
a mass of blossoms, or dissolving 
in the wild hyacinth; 
he will not find me in the blunderbuss at 
the bottom of the ocean, 

for I will not guard treasure, 
but will only create treasure 

let that be your canine tooth.
