Illumination



I had no blood on my hands,
so I dipped them in Kool-Aid,
I dipped them in ketchup (so gross),
and now I am waving at you.

I removed all my inessential bits,
and now I am a tiny void in space-time:
what passes through me illuminates
the history of the elimination.

I took a demon in one hand and
an angel in the other and mashed
them together until I had a real mess.
How I love that mess.

Peer through me, as through a keyhole:
everything is waving, and smiling.
