snakes slither
but nobody sees them
(so much stuff
slathered over
the truth)

I see them
of course

because I
am snake and
because I sent them

sent them to fish out
the ultimate cable, the link
the connection

between this simple, trivial, political evil,
magnificent deception, total sleight of hand
but always —
follow the money —
in service of power and
wealth idolatry

and the dark imperial beauty
of him who built a citadel out
of pure darkness

whose dream is denial, whose
heart antithesis
