Ode To Gregory
I have my rhetoric.
My quick tongue
And you have your old intelligence.
For there is no substance
but my own wit.
I cast you
to your birth -
from the depths
a thousand Arian dreams
of icy madness
the in-concrete darkness
Oh, that I was born
from my mother's womb.
smash his skull in.
Eat Raw death
from my belly
uh, drink my fever...
a liter of boiled blood.
A dog that will
and be beaten
by his master
into the night -
And for this
my quick wit
Yes, I am not agreeable
It is this dreadful
this gnarled face,
