Why All This Babble About Love?



The greatest actions are misdeeds;

in this walled room

primal instincts of history are:

blood letting, history is only

a memory, a  recall

charisma of rotund, infectious

blood letting, art demeans

the non describable. Whoosh

let out that color called blood.


So, I chart out a language

a discovery of, looking out for

and loving the fortunate. Hate.


Our primal concern is blowing,

ripping off flesh.

Then, the incarnadine red

is a slow pass over to life.

After life.


Then, tell me

why all this babble about love?
