<quoted text>
"THE ROBE OF CHRIST."
(By Joyce Kilmer.)
At the foot of the Cross on Calvary
Three soldiers sat and diced,
And one of them was the Devil
And he won the Robe of Christ.
When the Devil comes in his proper form
To the chamber where I dwell,
I know him and make the Sign of the Cross
Which drives him back to Hell.
And when he comes like a friendly man
And puts his hand in mine,
The fervour in his voice is not
From love or joy or wine.
And when he comes like a woman,
With lovely, smiling eyes,
Black dreams float over his golden head
Like a swarm of carrion flies.
Now many a million tortured souls
In his red halls there be:
Why does he spend his subtle craft
In hunting after me?
Kings, queens and crested warriors
Whose memory rings through time,
These are his prey, and what to him
Is this poor man of rhyme,
That he, with such laborious skill,
Should change from role to role,
Should daily act so many a part
To get my little soul?
Oh, he can be the forest,
And he can be the sun,
Or a buttercup, or an hour of rest
When the weary day is done.
I saw him through a thousand veils,
And has not this sufficed?
Now, must I look on the Devil robed
In the radiant Robe of Christ?
He comes, and his face is sad and mild,
With thorns his head is crowned;
There are great bleeding wounds in his feet,
And in each hand a wound.
How can I tell, who am a fool,
If this be Christ or no?
Those bleeding hands outstretched to me!
Those eyes that love me so!
I see the Robe -- I look -- I hope --
I fear -- but there is one
Who will direct my troubled mind;
Christ's Mother knows her Son.
O Mother of Good Counsel, lend
Intelligence to me!
Encompass me with wisdom,
Thou Tower of Ivory!
"This is the Man of Lies," she says,
"Disguised with fearful art:
He has the wounded hands and feet,
But not the wounded heart."
Beside the Cross on Calvary
She watched them as they diced.
She saw the Devil join the game
And win the Robe of Christ.

April,
You and I arenít that difficult
to solve, I think.
Itís like that final sequence in
Fahrenheit 451
where the people have become
the books theyíve memorized:
youíre Nine Stories
Iím Sixty Stories
óletís do
the math.....I know you want to !
I actually did the math immediately.(9-8=1)

There is a good principle which created order, light, and man, and an evil principle which created chaos, darkness, and woman.
~Pythagoras.

In the darkest alleys
there is beauty
And in the brightest rooms
there is hate

You can find someone
lying in the street
Masking the pain
saying something more profound

Than the cleanest one
whose filth is hidden
Bubbling inside
like a wretched cauldron

It is a world of difference
Shrouded in perspective !

? QUESTION MARK ?

Restrained from lingering,
from hoping, from dreaming,
from wishing until our minds
begin to halt at a dead end.

The feeling that grasps our mentality
and steers us in various, baffling directions,
but at the same time, makes us yearn for it,
long for it, need it.

It lures us in and leaves us cold.

It carries us with warmth
and forces us to dissipate
with merely anything left behind.

It can be unveiled in times of need,
of desperation.

It can hinder our nightmares,
and captivate the dreams.

It reached the culmination,
the apex of our emotions,
but never dove deep enough
to get the trough of our worst.

And maybe a happy ending doesnt include a guy,
maybe its you,on your own,picking up the pieces and starting over,freeing yourself up for something better in the future,maybe the happy ending is just moving on.!!!!

Languorously
the old man leafs
Through pages of the well read book.

The wind outside
moves the soft leaves
Above the meandering brook.

Unfulfilled,
he turns and leaves.

When the drab eventuality
of dusk finally crumbles,
and flakes,
like petals of forgotten flowers
against stained hospital sheet skies,
a mountain breeze injects life
into autumn leaves,
conjuring images of undead summer nights
that breathe rusted-orange wake-up dust
into owlsí eyes.

I've pressed so
far away from
my desire that

if you asked
me what I
want I would,

accepting the harmonious
completion of the
drift, say annihilation,

probably.

The sky kept crying into

My blue umbrella.

Later it will afford the

Irony of a rainbow.

He licks the
delicate flower

She devours
The mango fruit

They are the beasts
In Babylon

Though they have done
Not a Thing wrong
