Thoth Thy Writing Table

I am [far] more interested
in the Libraric Archives
within your Mind…
than the silken Chamber
between those Legs…
this delicate Evening.
Sit with me awhile
… and let us converse
about how ‘Extinction’
loses every hand
to ‘Transformation’.
The very next time I utter
the word ‘Weasel’
in reference to a person
… you will hear the hiss
of a snake attached to it
… and feel ‘Bristles’
standing up inside
your highly-strung senses.
Some ‘Write’ to Explain,
or to create Works of Art
… others to be Godlike…
I do ‘It’ to Ground
myself within a Reality
I barely even Exist inside.
