To Luke Buckham's previous piece To Luke Buckham's next piece
I Have Known I have known all the threatening simmers at dusk and now I'm fearless each footstep a blood raindrop rippling in the drag of gravity I have known the grass and all its spines to gather all earth's force beneath my homeless body now I sin against the sadness of my time by laughing as harshly as the claw-marks in the clouds in their exploding places every time the lazy mouths of gloom open in their unsearching hazes. There are few things that are not beautiful and little to complain of for one who has known death before death transcendence before heaven hell before judgment sex before sensitivity and after the rebirth of every nerve food before taste and after starvation love after nothingness free laughter after real insanity and everything tasted thereafter.
