ASSAULT
(7/23/11)


we look
at the
natural

the unnatural

the supernatural

then
we force
some apocryphal
human templates
of limited
understanding
over them
in a lame
attempt
to qualify
and quantify
what we sense
from our meager
temporal
plain

words
and numbers
that only cloud
the original
clarity

then
those standards
of measurement
become all
that we see

the phenomena
elude us

laugh
at us

pass us
by
as we grasp
for rulers

dictionaries

calculators

~

if someone
attempts
to smash
your skull
with a stone
don't just see
the morals
and laws
that are supposed
to protect
you

grab
the fucking
rock

it becomes
the only
reality
