School of Quietude for Dummies

They mount, have reached the threshold, dash the veil
Unfeeling and yet feeling, strongest thence?

The hesitating sunset floated back,
Sublimed their faint applause. In short, he found

In the past life, what might be singing's use?
Destroy: as hard, then, to obtain a Muse

A sort of human life: at least, was turned
A sudden barrier ('was a cloud passed o'er)

I used to think getting published in hardback was the logical culmination of writing: but now I know that's like expecting them to erect a bronze statue of you in the town square.

   The Thetan Frontier

This woven raiment of nights and days
greenhorn contingent of cargo hustlers

I heard R’llyeth talking

full of blown sand and foam; what help is here?

in the darkness of time, in the deeps
of little guilt worms crawling

a desert of electronic dust

and the southwest-wind and the west-wind sing

there is none of them clear to us now, not one
howling whiteness under blackness

cat footed between the lumpy bunks

and the high gods took in hand

green satin and spine-bones
an armed angel whose hands rause up

fissures in the untooled rock
