Gene Soul Ships


Genetic code codas packed insecurely 
Into ships of souls, down Charon’s chasms 

Our delicate infinitely complex mutating 
Soul programs mixing intermeshing 




White Sands


White sands gust, drift, and whirlwind whipping
Tornadoes of pure colourless desert grains
Goddess twisters contort into a glass isthmus




Everything Evaporate


Whirlwind pooling cascading vermillion ions
Of Irish irises into asymmetrical Assyrian 
Travertine pearlescent marble Colonnades 






Voices upon voices 
Multitudes of domineering  

Tyrannical totalitarian commands
Issue forth from alien gods luscious lips 

Leave this forsaken world become
One with us into the blessed black hole 
Of the beatific immaterial pleroma 




Humanist Gods


Humanoid humanist Hume gods
Produce utopia on Earth and Mars 
With Lucifer’s children rebelling
