OBJECT OF WORSHIP  /  WORSHIP OF OBJECT

Aerial speaks

I know what happened
about it - a bout of madness?
a bout of maddened... what?
what happened?
you know      I know
shock  disbelief  short-lived
and then acceptance
still the shock
dis belief      belief      in      hell
these words - for heaven's opposites
and heavens, for insanities
would be more honest if they were not used
as the lifeline of this sculpture's shape
as I see my way around it
see it straight
in my eye's mind
its wonder      dissipates
unless I go back into it
to wander      the shape
it makes
an whole thing
unexamined, unprecedented
information, sympathy and space
the mechanism which that split occurs
existing obligations join together
with a solder excess impotence
outrage
        like this
                 we know
                            instantly
instantly
          eye presently
I set
to work
to modify
dissipates into disappears
to modify what?
you know      I know
but do I know?
and whom?
are you to say? I think
I speak therefore am wise
to be listening forced to
succumb to ventriloquism
for them any longer
