Come, horizon, hold...
Be not fidget-gadgetry
on gray dot spirit waves.
Your ghosts are omnipresent,
blizzard-blur god, black and white...
Glorious, You ride the air and extend
Your wiry tendrils to touch our lives, sing
sitcomsitcom celestial sponsor priests
sell sacred macaroni and nirvana behind
curtain number three, altar of plastic
faux woodgrain messiah, chant
lux-in-livingroom, we have come
to worship

You, we kneel
in reverence before
Thee, cyclops saviour...
Dormant divinity, You rest as
we prepare the ceremony, first light
of Saturday, as altar boys race reverent
down the stairs to lie prone before Thee, waiting...
Pajama virgins gather, clutching sacrificial
barbiedolls,
eager for your teachings, innocent disciples
giggle-witness cereal ritual, red, green, blue,
the Trinity:
snap,
crackle,
pop...
Freak Wednesday modulated god
we freeze, content
in dull adoration, watch
over us with Thy steel gray eye, anoint
us electric, accept our minds and children...

There is unrest in the temple;
sneaking nova Cains enabled
plot to steal the sacrificial lambs, as books
lobbed by the savage PTA mob
strike Thy cathode martyr face,
as crucified You bleed electrons for our sins
and radiate that haunting gameshow smile,
serene in immortality.



voices, processed theremins, bell, shortwave heterodyne and manipulated static...
