Redisintegrated Disco

Pulsars pulsating sweating walls rip open
Skylines fall as the rave devours it
Into the rippling crimson night aglow in gold

Make it Stay

Bomb bomb bitty bomb bomb
Feeling like the sun on our face now

Why does it always have to go away?
Can we, can we make it stay? 

Socrates

Is the unexamined life truly not worth living?
Would one choose to be a happy, content pig 
Or an unhappy, angst filled, suicidal human? 

Inferno

Infinity on infinity of perpetual circumambulating 
Torrents of Turin torment 

Our consolation is that we are the interesting souls
Pain can be a paradise

Eckhart Ice Dialectic

The same eye in which I see God
Is the same eye in which God sees me

Monotheistic God morphs merging with 
Forms of the divine femme, Sophia
