cross

The difficulties of blowing trumpet
Drastically increase for people with equine heads,
But sleep is only a mild disaster for trimmed manes.
Of course, musicians tend to forget the shoes on the roofs
Of the buildings they fail to forgive.
Do horses forget the hooves in the rivers
They cannot cross?

  1. by denying death can the hooves cross
    horses made famous
    by blinking away unpleasant moments
    poets never discuss their electroshock therapy
    bourgeois comfort in a German saddle
    the finest leather detail
    it is seldom emotions
    that make the poet happy
    it is seldom the New Gospel
    that makes the child safe at night
    bizarre people protest in the streets
    they have nothing positive to experience
    no rocket ship to construct
    before eternity crashes in on them
    in the historical Gospels
    they are the suffering nobodies
    the spiritually disenfranchised
    the homes that they inhabit
    are stolen
    the horses they master
    are stolen
    all of their bourgeois comfort
    at the expense of coal miners
    and other humans of Slave America

  2. the question being
    WHAT ROLE DOES THE HOOVES CROSSING THE RIVER
    PLAY IN THE SALVATION DRAMA ?
    Kentucky runs low on science and technology
    high on copperheads and rattlesnakes
    Obamacare electroshock and vinegar baths
    think you can rival the past ?
    step right up son, callousness counts
    —————————-serpent coils around plagiarism
    imprisoning jazz—angry apes
    then vengeful apes

    • horses have no desire to meet paul and peter in the afterlife
      they slowly pull carriages full of electroshoked pastors through kentucky
      ditching their own unrivaled past now and then
      plagiarizing everything the roadside gawkers reckon sacred

  3. everything that is me
    at one time was Peter and Paul
    the lady 3 houses down
    was complaining about you today
    that you’ve been leaving obscenities
    in her herb garden
    I know that you are a hero
    a champion among champions
    but please—
    BE A MERCIFUL MAN !!!
