And to all the rest who played on this:
Thank you even though I have forgotten your names.
PSALM 133:1 ¶ <> LORD, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me.
2 Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a weaned child.
3 Let Israel hope in the LORD from henceforth and for ever.
There is NO RAIN today
For the CLOUDS have SUCKED
UP all the WATER
From the FACE of the EARTH
Dry as Dusty Bones
Are what used to be Oceans
Inverted Mountains are the Pockmarks of the Acne of FLESH.
There was NEVER RAIN
Just the constant Weeping
Of Timeless Agony
And the Blood that Lie, Seeping:
From the gash of wounded Love
Bleeding from the Outward->IN
Timeless in its PURITY
Like the Knife of a Surgeon
There was Never Rain
There was only Sorrow
No Apologies Taken for the Crushing of Another's Dreams
You take your good intents
You take your concern
You take your two faces:
And go to Hell and Burn!
There is NO RAIN today...
For THE CLOUDS have SUCKED.
