Master of the Universe

Master of the Universe

If all our enemies were so
identified
We could search them out
With seals

And erasers
For blotting out
Or with blotters
For preserving

Memories
Of what
They did
When

Or we could take their
Power away
Entirely
As the thought arose

In the pictures
As they appear before you
I see enemies
And dis-integrators

And instigators
Have-nots
Too and haves
Who want more

And reversionists
Who want the past
The way the past [never]
Was

Or fearfulists
Who are afraid
Of the Future
Neutral on the present

They may have
Made a complete
Mess
Of the past

They are durable
Like insects
Like the Cimex lectularius*
In New York City

Or the mice in Jerusalem
Or the cats in Jerusalem
Who came to
Eat the mice

The cats now own the night
They are un-Conquerable
We have to be
Smarter
