The Goods Gods

(south window, larry's study, twins, spider woman, others)

The Wild Flower Powers Act 
ascertaining all the good that is in the Gods 
Gods spelled with a capital awful 
and preceding from there to the d for damned 
the s of snakes in coupling, if plural 
which is the only way 
and back from the s's 
over the awful of d and the blank vowel 
to G the goddamned, the gee 
of Gee Jesus whodunit Christ 
the master on the Paul 
jacking off Christianity 
Peter & Paul
                      & the holy rod 
stood like common ordinary prick juices 
between them 
Peter & Paul & the horse 
the nightmare of the cross buried 
upside down & forgotten 
coming up in supermarket lilies 
at exactly the wrong time 
Jesus syringed out of God 
over Paul showing him 
the mystic rod to beat his women with 
is how Paul interpreted 
& spread the original joy 
down through the Church 
the Church with a big S hissing 
churches of the rock of Peter 
hard to stone 
spilling or rather 
shooting the hardon into the female church
burst the doors out with 
pretend sperm 
as the male gods refused goddesses 
and rubbed their come on the backs of altars 
the hems of their vesicles 
chasubles and the rest of their impoverished 
rich filth 
that made up the masculine lurch 
from the feminine 
cunt-opera-stone rather to specific 
vulva altar 
like an acorn entering– 
I abominate the history of the Catholic Church 
 (and the Protestant is no protest now... )
I feel free to commit myself 
to freedom from it 
and all its old-fashioned 
Popery puke 
knee-deep in repression 
forked-tongue altars 
split-image confessions 
power-cocked ears 
wealth-misused to 
extract from the mob 
diamonds.& emeralds 
rubies back 
out of their breaking backs 
humping for more tithes 
the orgasmic coffers of the church 
with little token Mary's 
our Lady of Sorrows 
our Virgin of Guadalupe 
robbing Cihuacoatl 
of her skirts.

Toss off what burns
anything painful is not part of the good
in gods 
and one "o" to gods, it's goods– 
erase the church it's 
           the churches 
tied-up masturbatory lurches 
the women priests 
under their thumbs 
under their knees 
under the foundations of the churches 
come rolling out in the light of day 
a new subway rakes off the clay 
and exposes the Goddess 
the mask behind the face looks 
the God in the Goddess 
several tons of exact 
the train of events 
surrounding the circle 
of ancient daddy, old-time mammy 
that old couple 
that old goat, old nanny 
that old fashioned 
Southern family 
from way down 
deep down 
the archeologist hands me 
just such picture 
of what he found there

this was she & he in trees 
in gorgeous swamps 
mosquito ridden 
hiding in the hills 
the groom runs up with best man 
to find her or is it her 
hiding there 
it is her passing 
the wild flowers act 
the power of the two like scales of form 
stations of the house 
the office, the club 
the legislature, congress 
chief of staff 
the board of poets and sculptors 
like scales of function 
space and matter 
the governing bodies race to the top 
where there's only two there 
sometimes doubled 
sometimes tripled. 
Going out with god becomes 
going with the gods becomes 
getting    the goods– 
they are goods 
when they pop out at you  
       or caressed 
rise up to you  
       when blessed 
warm up in you when 
gentled hold, 
surround you are 
the us 
of lust 
the lie 
of life 
that is just 
that is lying down
duplicity emerges
one to the other
in exact duplicates
that become opposites
two males as different as
night and day
two females worlds
all thrown together
to make up gods
that focus on
the man, the men
and woman, women
they are, they are
or were found again
to be totally new– 
caught with the goods
the man as far away from the woman
as he can be
rides the same horse
he tamed – 
she made the horse
comes back in
with her fins
he turns after
swimming in their house
with their goods
compressed air fills the tires of his truck– 
hot air blows
her hair dry
quickly–it’s so short– 
quickly they’re so small
that is the circles of air
they breathe
surrounding earth
with all its goods.
