Black Diamond Sutra

Thus I have heard this 

that guided by beer light 

I came into town 

fucked under 

by days slept late  

good enough for the future  

and all the white that 

happiness writes 

chest out 

and stomach in  

and shoulder back  

against waves 

not ocean 

nor radio  

could cure me clean 

the way once 

I was 

yet when  

what never comes 

comes to 

so too 

shall you and I 


and collapse 

and begin 


to get born 

with or without a war  

I love to you 

when you say 

waiting is so beautiful 

you don’t believe you 

but from my brightest eye 

to my blackest heart 

I do
