Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh Again

Those Birds perched on barbed wire
They shall be my requiem
There they are in small black notes
As to all too soon they will fly far far away
Their song fading as a failing falling body
This and the hiss of dissent from hollow lips
Disguised as naked shaven shower heads
These of we who could not conform
So and so erased are our memories
That they live forever against a darkened sky
So sorry I feel sorry for our black comic moment
I am ever always impressed with oppression
And its ultimate futility; the ends always means the same
When it comes to the chorus comes in chiming
Like a century clock ringing out its doleful hours
Amen hallelujah ditto ditto et cetera et cetera

Such is the core of the crime
You will not let me be
So you say so I go
And now you set me free

I am still the I I am
Wherever I will be

Woolen blankets will wrap me in wire
An imperfect insulator from the irony
Rusting in rain razed as razors
Vicious spirals pulled across chain-link lines
Spanning my awakened wide horizon,
Passing whatever past I’ve past
Out beyond the call to every end of it all
My personal blind spot vanishing point,
These gifts they kill me from like kind
Cold, in sensed, and mirth have no value here
Bury my heart under any young laurel
After you walk it it’s mournful miles
Singing all my old songs I’ve left behind
Left as leaves fallen in fall raked with rakes
All we are left with is our faith in words
And sometimes not even that

Such is the end of all things
That final period time
You say stop so I go
And all I have is mine

I am still the I I am
Wherever I will be
