darkness falls upon Humanity
and faces become terrible
things
that want more than there
was.

all our days are marked with
unexpected
affronts-some
disastrous,others
less so
but the process is
wearing and
continuous.
attrition rules.
most give
way
leaving
empty spaces
where people should
be.

our progenitors, our
educational systems, the
land, the media, the
way
have
deluded
and misled the
masses: they have been
defeated
by the aridity of
the actual
dream.

they were
unaware that
achievement or victory or
luck or
whatever the hell you
want to call
it
must have
its defeats.

it's only the re-gathering and
going on
which lends substance
to whatever magic
might possibly
evolve.

and now
as we ready to self-destruct
there is little left to
kill

which makes the tragedy
less and more
much much
more.

Charles Bukowski

It's like this Richard.

A spy for the Redemer is a witch - Salem's (Trent) Lott.

Or if you will, Theresa and I working together won the (Council of) Trent Lott-eerie.
