    You also in the laughter, warrior angel:
    Your helmet the zodiac, rocket-plumed
    Your spear the beggar's finger pointing to the mouth
    Your heel planted on the serpent Formulation
    Your face a vapor, the wreath of cigarette smoke crowning
    Bogart as he winces through it. What wonderful expressions. great.. tony

    This inscrutable poem can only be understood by those who have a Jewish mother.

    Religious mantra bordering on ritualistic sentencing and judgment; at the end it becomes something mundane- we can understand: You Be The Medicine. Elegantly crafted.
