Maelstrom


Maelstrom

The grinding stream, the maelstrom 
is a way to the land of the dead 
dilate yr mind beyond the unbearable 
it is not a forgiving universe 
it is inexorable as the stars in their courses 
where no sparrow could fall unnoticed 
for there are seeds which propagate 
themselves along the jetstream of time 
the mud has lost its cutting edge 
the omphaloessa, the umbilical cord has been severed 
"into water wind has come, into water wind will go" 
time to separate heaven and earth with a sickle
