God’s Play

by JEREMIAH WALTON

A harangue, illustrated by my vocals
Flails to dirt caked ears from the podium
And the hardbringers had brought warning of my speech
Say I am testifying as a God of men
Marked reprehensible, a verbal leper
Instead of flesh, my mind is bricked
According to the whispers at least
Caught in the hail of abtruse ideas
The onlookers swarm with hoarse-
“Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah!”‘s
Instruments of flowery words
Tuned to abrogate mine
They are all swayed by the last person
Standing where my sandals bake
Knowing the next will call mine blasphemy
And pluck the crowd’s chords
Each note resonating the speakers tenous ideas
Gazing on the infected crowd, a cluster of discredible material
Oozing out of slack jaws
I imagine them all the equivelent of cow flesh hooked
I step to the side, my shadow and I done
Throat dry, looking to the podium above my own
“Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah!”

Time Part 5

by JEREMIAH WALTON

I no longer want to be concious of my existence
And I understand, because of the outlook of this writing
This piece will be ridiculed and demoralized
But I simply realized my own individual truth
There is no difference between 5 minutes
And 50 years
This is an idea found by human thought
As time is
It is an idea
It is numberless
We try to contain it with dates, clocks, and watches
But it is endless and eternal
And we are trapped in it
A writer knowing his breaths will not be missed
Nor any human breath
The average lifespan of a human is 67.2 years
And of a mammal species as a whole
1,000,000 years
I am manipulating language to form a philosphicle case
That will be dismissed by others as the agitations of an angry, immature child
