The Skeleton Train
    #1066608 - 11/19/02 05:00 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

I. Boarding: Melon-Water Fever

"We're on a skeleton train, baby,
We're on a skeleton train now
If you're wondering why,
Maybe we'll tell you somehow.

The prison train's a chuggin
Soakin' coal through a straw
The engine must go on in this coal-shovelin' craw.

Swaying back and forth
like a squirel on a stone wall
pushing up the mountains
into the dessert snowfall

An Asian beauty brushes my shoulder
Her virginal purity touches my soul
This train could lurch forever
Its swaying flow; her sweet melon-water coal

If only the grapes would spawn an oceon
Of temple-blueprint skeleton potion
The skin absorbs... a witchcraft lotion!
As melon-water fever breeds dissacociative devotion...



II. Embarkation: The Harlot.

Lust and drunken debauchery
Reach for me with claws
If only I had a virgin nurse
with pure, white gauze
to wrap my industrial wound
with a crystaline microchip God.

But not before swabbing
the festering puss-filled wounds
that dribble from my flesh
(like tides pulled by the moon)
with the fragrent herbs
to act as a poultice:
Sagebrush from the hills
and from the water, a lotus

The lotus which blooms from the mud,
the mud of the industrial revolution.
Oh where is my nurse of pristine electric purity
to redeem the whore of Babylon
with her interconnectivity sanctuary?

Perhaps she's in the mountains,
running razor ridges,
crooned to sleep by coyotes,
woken up by midges
that bite into her skin,
flushing pale with scarlet;
but she won't succumb
until she defeats the harlot,

"No, she won't succumb until she defeats the harlot"



III. In Transit: Havens

Where should I choose to cease my wandering?
The dank and spicy forest with pebbled streams meandering?
Perhaps on the cliffs of a wave-chewed coast?
Or on the peaks of snow-capped mountains, flitting like a ghost?

Or in a Turkish harem
replete with the notes of flutes,
smoking cigars rolled by harlots,
whores the tailors of my suits?

Or lost in labrynth cities, those above-ground sewers,
enticed by flashing signs- neon fishing lures,
whose purpose is to hook you right upon your lip,
but if the hook is swallowed, your innards they will rip.

If there is but one haven from the screeching of metal gears like teeth,
it is the honey-melon soul beseeching
raining melon-dew forgiveness on every falling leaf.

But the Sorrow of the East (as it shall be known)-
The rupturing of organs; the splintering of bones-
It is because each rain drop, that blesses from the skies,
encapsulates the acid of the machines, and so it dies...

Gotta love the word harlot.  That is some vivid-ass verse ya' got there. :cool: 
It's like a movie.  I see it as a good project for Lynch.

IV. Mountain Tunneling: Submarine

A pure sphere of blinding white
to carry this orb takes all my might
Soul on my back like a hermit crab's blight
I carry my home into the howling night.

For it is always night in the oceon
beneath the chaotic motion
of the waves. And it was from this potion
the first flickerings of life arose in.

Of the prehistoric amoebas,
funking in their muck,
did they evolve complete with soul?
And did their guardian angels give a fuck?
Of their swamp of primordial scum,
the cradle of sparkling life,
if it only knew the horror
of holographic biomechanoid strife!

For you'd hope, in the depths of the sea,
the taint of mankind wouldn't be.
But an army is transmitting signals,
Submarine radar shrieks mingle
with the cooing of whale's communications-
They become beached due to loss of direction.



V. Approach: Chaotic Cloaca.

China blue corneas water
and salt from the sucking sea
crams in our sockets and scatters
images of amber and green

The flight of frightened sea-gulls,
torn with wind asunder,
clinging to priate-ship masts,
huddling to their sea-gull brothers,

Dripping and dropping in dribbles,
the chaulky white smut from their rears,
crusting on sun-worshippers' nipples
and leaking inside of their ears.

A scream from the lungs of the captain
muffled by train-window tinted,
sabers slashing at feathers;
a war on high seas is presented

But though the legions of air have been routed,
the pirates celebrate victory too soon,
for the whales and dolphins (bottle snouted)
drag them down to their watery doom.


VI. Arrival: Venom Leather-Oil

The Skeleton Train's a cruel mistress
where the water is white as a dove.
The filet mignion is divine,
but the wine is bottled God's-blood from above.

Swirl it around your palette;
Let the crushed sap soak into your toungue,
but make sure to spit out the sip,
don't swallow it as others have done.

The fractal-medusa wine lingers
on your tastebuds like scorpion spine:
A bottle of snakes- beware!
A bear-trap claw-snap for swine.
For this brew was bottled in Germany.
By a Nazi dominatrix most surly.
She oils her leather with venom,
and with a grin wishes you a pleasant journey,

"Yeeeaaaaaaah, have a pleasant jouney....
Yeeeaaaaaaah, have a gooooood... "trip".



p.s. posted this in the spirituality/philosophy forum for the "high-brow" crowd;  sorry if this has to be moved to "creative arts"- just hoping this poem could raise some philosophical discussion about issues of psychedelic "purity"/sexuality/ the "whore of babylon" symbol/ spiritual purity vs. the inherent "messiness and FILTHYNESS" of the  raw, true, glory of mushroom earth-spirituality/ ego-death and rebirth to cut through the patterns of karma= salvation/ the seduction of technology as the whore which mankind must reject... redeem?/ etc.
Hail the Mantis!

:wink:

Yikes! I think I'm left on the tracks watching the train and Nazi Dominatrix ride off. But is the train coming back to pick me up again? Cuz I drank the brew??
Interesting story.
