Sebokeng Siege (from Talking Rain pg 5)

in headbands leadhands the red of murder
still the words thunder & roll
as they fall in soda-pop
of a necklaced eye-ball it's an eyesore
words of reform
tumbling in a storm from clouds of
chloroform
the word is the last like it was the first
beginning was the word that was J)evt?r heard
for the word was god &: god was dead
in a 6 &: 9 jesus bled wine
made vampires of holy believers
still the preachers say
there's a heaven up above
coming down your way with biblical love
a love as sweet as shit that stalks & stinks up
the street
from the bowels of a christian law
the present is a time of war
where
measuring the time of the tide' s turning
gauging the gait of a heart's yearning
weighing the wind of a wing's flapping
the shattering song is breaking glass
in the gloom of the singing of the morning
in the evening light
in the sight of plight in the smell of death
in a dead tent caught
in the rant & rave of writhing phantasms
in the grave in spasms
in god gone berserk
in a black on black
black attack
white lead eats up a head
it's the blooming seed of a bleeding night
black sunlight in the silhouette of death
&: birth ... between the teeth ... of a bullet hot ... in flesh
