the machineless binding system

	what will you say
	when the world is reduced to 
	scrap metal
	and the gods have 
	fallen drunk
	with buddha cloned
	and kissing jade
	beneath a neon waterfall

	of ether and esther;
	2 sisters colliding
	in brilliant shades of
	persistent dawn
	waiting for the pigs
	to fall.
