"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

not recommended readingūüöę

i have 3 times told the living  they are dying

why is there so much fear here?  contamination

by the stench?  smell that smell?  or is it   witness protection?

 

i mean cancer isn’t smallpox ¬†or is it? ¬† Tolstoy writes

of the lie  in Ivan Ilyich   no one will tell the dying man  that

he is  dying   but when u do   they let go   u know

 

probably u do not

 

but i do   and i do not consider the skill   hero   hell no

it came to me  unbidden  unloved  unkempt too   death

the primal exit of sacred substances ¬† ain’t pretty

 

blood   fecal   ruach   et al.

(unless they vacuum them post-haste)

 

that skill just showed up  like the pox or the plague  or God

u know when God shows up  it usually spells trouble  like old

Kronos eating his kids  do mother Gods eat their kids too?

 

some do

some humans

do too

Cancer ridden Ivan Ilyich  to his doctor:

won’t you ever be ashamed of your lying?¬† but

the cheerful doctor does not wish to understand

such a question.. (The Death of Ivan Ilyich  Leo Tolstoy 1886)

 

Spring 2021   ..gestation your 1st tentacle.. lying doctors your last..
