WS3, Vancouver, B.C. I am the word
that precedes the sword

and the voice that will continue
through other lips

i am the carrier of absolute death
and darkness

i count the minutes in the universe

no christ image, this

this is the pealing of bells
in the graveyard
brief, distant notes of warning


i am neither lesson nor reminder
and I hold out no salvation

at any price

i am the utter darkness in guile shapes
that runs on desire feet
through your thoughts

i am the expedient evil
that you will happily bless as truth.
