With The Spirit Of The Laws


Life!
With he spirit of the laws;
Life!
With the spirit of your love;
Peace!
With the spirit of beauty;
Muse!
With the spirit of life;
Shape!
Like the beauty of a woman.

Words of command! !
Like groudnuts and sugar;
Life!
Coming out of sin;
Love!
Growing up with apositive mind;
Final goal!
With the sweet muse of hope.

The womb!
For your birth;
The comb!
For your hair;
The bomb!
For your death;
And, the tomb for your burial.

I

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
