Writing On Wall to the tune of Hey bird dog
blasted eight feet off the ground.
Acrobatic block-long wigglers
like engravings covered freeways, signs.
Then it disappeared. What happened?
Civilization waxing? Democracy made safe?
City Sandblast and Paint
Triumph’s come, they boasted, but mind forged, engraved in walls,
it penetrated down to bone in invisibly soul-marred boys.
imagine the original,
but the outside now
How did the writing
off the wall
into the bone?
Sure there’s time
Before the blood-brain
ESL is syntax,
not just verse,
sure, that’s a good sign.
But we needs some cats to sandblast Johnny’s mind.
that’s where the writing went
in eye and ear in hypertext,
it don’t mean Johnny’s reading
when he’s read to death.
and look in
Saint Blake did.
He said these days a net would cover mind,
called a Promethean to break the chain, the world wide web.
Don’t put him down as Microsoft.
He left his will engraved.
