    this was dropped in the RSTl, but now it's been added too and revised. Comments welcome.
    -----------------------------

    My mind shattered into pieces and I fell on both knees crying
    atop fallen shards of daggers, trenched omniscient and implying
    knowledge of myself. Of my hurting, my lying, its cheating pendants
    that's all I seemed to do and I was exposed, under red fluorescents
    a pungent reminder of the medicinal properties of karma
    its chemicals and articulation, stitching my hearts fall

    Lacerations etched a maze of blisters on my sunlit body
    and I couldn't feel them. I was euphoric from punishment probably
    and I chased the high again and again, shooting up its ornate arrow
    its feathers flared out of my existence, its tip a sharp soothing voice
    of good company and shoestring comforts, coolly poised
    it contracted a smile from me, amusing my lipid shackles
    an inner Jackal laughing insipidly, choking on erratic crackles
    it resonated throughout my circuitry of unabated servitude
    just now tasting the fruit of my labor, fully ripe it knew

    I heard one million battle cries at once, a collective of mankind
    each different but the same, all reflective and confined
    to eternal rest and affluent stings of angel tipped-kisses
    their pasty bliss strangled by eloquence lipped in eclipses

    I reached one arm up and held on for another first day
    when the world felt correct and so thirsty someway
    Or any other conviction of universal truth
    So orderly and prescribed and very vital
    to my own deception

    I kissed my fingers, offering love to the master God
    I was dismissed I figured, a windsurfer on a faster squad
    all was not settled or clean, or as free. Or as simple as it seems
    I realized I saw many things; remembering meaningful meanings...

    I saw the distant churning and turning
    of clumsy vultures circling and swerving
    consistent random patterns in the sky
    I knew then I was their fertile soil, once I die
    I felt proportionally top heavy and thought
    a map of redemption could find me and be caught
    or be found if I swayed against them long enough
    for more time to play my last card, a two of jaded hearts
    desperations only hope, blindly bluffing a fools baited dart

    I envisioned their hooks clamping down
    on leathery flesh, blood damp brown
    shampooed, conditioned into soft raw material
    as imperial as the true color of eternal sun shine
    I clenched my teeth, waiting for the interval pain to subside
    waiting for the last call...

    I closed my eyes

    Some time after that, I painted all windows black
    I was now the ship and my mind the bottle
    my face long and my stare empty, soulless
    two pupils larger than dinner plates
    staring point blank at absolutely nothing
    forcing every ounce of energy, moving my Queen of hearts
    behind a stage curtain called Jupiter
    wrapped in a moist membrane
    of my ancestral past

    And so I faced my Judgment over and over
    chasing my own sins around and around again
    but never quite getting anywhere beyond
    the Saviors soothing hand, grabbing at straws
    because the Devil was sort of behind him, pulling
    but ahead now, controlling in a relative way
    and while I fell into lucid dreams
    and lost all to deceptive fantasy
    he never spoke again with much words to say
    content that I will suffer a life times worth

    I was gone now
    I will suffer the awkwardness
    mostly because
    I do not exist
