    Take your place in sand,
    your likeness cut in marble,
    sculpted by the gods
    Here's a simple axiom: Once a mob has a bonfire to guide it, there is no telling how much it can accomplish. It's potential is limitless.

    Sculpted by the gods
    Then left behind to weather
    The trials of life

    The trials of this life
    will weigh one-fiftieth less
    in the next ant world.

    In the next ant world
    we'll reincarnate into
    shares of Citibank.

    Shares of Citibank
    or the left bank of the Seine,
    which one would you pick?

    Which one would you pick?
    All these meandering piglets
    or the trifling of mice.

    Or the trifling of mice
    and men who are their masters--
    a piece of cheese sir.

    This poem is in 5-8-6 syllable form. We are playing 5-7-5.


    The trifling of mice
    makes them scurry; unaware
    two jaws lie in wait.

    "A piece of cheese, sir
    Micky?" He took it with a
    swollen, white-gloved hand.

    Find another patient --
    this day has been pulled writhing
    from hands and scalpels.

    you must leave or else

    You cannot escape—
    Neither entrance nor exit
    are found on this path

    under the full sun,
    your life is raw and exposed,
    shielded from nothing

    by the lunge of momentum --
    still, its needle voice.

    still, her needle voice
    weaves into my consciousness
    stitching fresh regret
