Fate, fate, it rhymes with eight

Eight, eight, it rhymes with hate

Affinity, infinity, they rhyme with divinity

“LOVe I eVOL” now rhymes: above I see all

Now Fate rhymes with Hate

And Eight rhymes with Infinity

As FVinity rhymes with Love

Now Love rhymes with Destiny

And Destiny rhymes with Fate


The Time of Love

Now Rhymes Above

Apostles’, Apostate

Rights for me but not for thee
Left is true but Right for you
Freedom for brothers that aren’t the Others
Justice for us, on the same bus

Which bus are thee on, which way does it go
Which side are you on, which way do you flow
Which people are we with, which ones are we part of
Which ones are the sinners, which ones’ve departed

After leaving the State of one
After leaving, apostate become
O Destiny, O Seeker in the Dark
O Fools‘ Fate, allow me one final Spark

An Empire

An Empire of Ants

An Empire of Gorillaz
An Empire of Little Dragons

An Empire of vibrations
An Empire of sands
And umpire of gorillas
T(w)oo cosmic vibration (s)

An empire state

A ton of things are beautiful
Reggae is beautiful
I am beautiful

A Ton of Reggae is beautiful
Just as Reggaeton is beautiful
And the Prince of Reggaeton is beautiful:

What is our empire of man, except a sham?
For in the face of DraGons we are damned
If ants are meaningless to us
As mice or bees or birds are
Then we are meaningless to Drag-us
As rice or 🅱️s or turds are

Not knot, knock knock
Who’s there?
Hobb’s hobby
Hobb’s hobby hoo?

Hobb’s hobby of magic naming
Of art making
Of knot breaking
Of plot-baking

Is simply unmatched

Will naming magic be forgot?

So dance for the love as the club jock plays
We don’t care what them people say

U. A, M interpreting Shawn Mendes’ Life of the Party

Kanye is Yeezus and I am 🅱️zus

U A, M

Terminal, Sermon-al
Do I make connections where there ain’t none?
Detonate, annihilate
Is the Highest Building in Clerres or Berkeley?
What’s GRRM’s tallest mountain to climb? (So far…)
For isn’t a mountain a building built by nature

What terminus
Will be built by nature’s sermon-us?
What lights lecture, which lights connect the spirits of the past with the present and the future

Tina’s version
Phil’s version

The rite of the East, the fights of the West
The lights of the North, the Lights of the south
The lights we will meet, these lights are the best
The Fight in the North, the Rights in the south

Our own lights starve out the Northern Lights
And now we’re starved for Northern Lights
O Beat of Time, won’t you let there be auroras borealis
O Clock of Dune, won’t you
Let there be 🅱️auroras 🅱️-Orealis

O Realis, O Realize
O Real-Eyes, O Re-Ill-Eyes
A Roar-rus, O Roar Raz
O Roar Us, A Roar Raz

Now that we’ve pretended airplanes’re shooting stars
We’ll pretend glare’s flames’re-Rora’s bars:

Chasing auroras, chasing cars
We be chasin, till I drop bars:

I’m runnning away now, from Northern Lights
I runaway now from, North to South
Run-Uh-Way with, Runaway with me from North, to Southern Lights

And run back from Suthern to Nuthern Lights

Green lights, purple lights,
Green drugs, purple psychedelics
Green haze, purple haze
Green rain, purple rain

Now Destiny’s, blessed-in-me,
Cuz purple’s purpose’s becoming green for me

All i want after this
Is all I want after

All I want,
After waiting such a long time to see shooting stars

Oh, it’s like inception now
Waking up from dreams again and again
When will it ever enddd
When will the week-end

Now for no reason,
Most of
(Everything I’ll do)
I’ll do it for you, Aurora’s Shooting Stars

Hope you don’t get too lost
In the hyperlinks
For then you’ll face a high cost
Struck by hya-per Links
Hope you don’t die
Struck but not burst
Sung but not thirst?:

Dune, Flume
Mind-Killer, Mein killer

A tapestry of blue will be found
So a maphist’ry of you will be found
Just as,
A valance of purples ‘n greens will be found
So that a balance of purpose serenes will be found

On Timekeeping


A Coincidence of Sentience

The cycle of the moon aligning with the menstrual cycle acted as a first concept of measurement

Shreya Prasad, via Athabasca

Inspired by conversations with Olya and Shreya around Shreya’s Goddesses in Mythology course. (Unrelated, I also took a course from Athabasca once…)

Our Period is a Clock

Olya Jaworsky

An HourGlass Shape, the Glass of HOur Shape

U A, M.

Were women the first timekeepers because they had periods that almost lined up the period of a moon cycle? And was timekeeping necessary for humans to jump into our level of intelligence?

A lunar cycle, 29 point 5 days
A point, a period, 28 or so days
Seven divides it to give a week
East and West, North and South
7 days in a week remain

Both 29.5 and 28
So close to each other
And close to 30, dividing 360
And neatly gives 12, a highly composite number
Such numbers divide better than anything below them
And we humans love division

A revolutionary cycle, 365 point 25 days
So close, so close to that highly composite 360
And so close to being just 365
But off by just a bit
That tiny imperfection requiring leaps of years to fix
We humans yearn for perfection

But still, but still
Despite imperfections, we went with 12
Again and again and again
Solar or Lunar, Gregorian or Indian
12 months in a year and 12 hours in a day’s
So highly composite, we can divide
Into halves and thirds and quarters

12 months in a year
But only 10 fingers on our hands
Giving birth to a base 10 system
Thus cursed were we with more imperfection
And yet, and yet
These tiny closeness-es, may have forced us
To develop our greater mathematical intelligence

We loved our highly composite numbers so much
We put 60 seconds into a minute
60 minutes into an hour
And 12, and 12 again, hours into a day
For a total of a highly composite 24
And yet, our biological clocks
Are so close, so imperfect again
For instead we found it slightly longer
24 hours and 11 minutes, give or take

While I theorized before
That our intelligence arose from interactions
With plants and fungi around us
Perhaps one more jump was needed
A biological coincidence, an astronomical coincidence,
And a mathematical coincidence, to tie them together
And these coincidences of timekeeping
Of composite numbers
Of tiny imperfection
And of closeness
May-be what’s needed
For a human level of sentience

Artists Are Shape-Shifters

Inspired by Flume

A Sequel to Artists Are Spell-Casters

A fool without fitz
A Fitz without Foresight

A pitch without melody-site
A tool without pitchz

U A, M

Artists are shapeshifters
Masters are Shape-Shifus
Just as they are jape-grifters
And as they are grape-drinkers
Now, wine hasn’t been drunk in a long time

A Half-Charmed kinda life
A Staff armed with a knife
What to do with this life
What to do, rope or knife

What shape to become for this artist
What to do, for this part is
Easy, so can someone tell me
What hard is?

What shape is the most difficult
What shape belongs not to cult
What symbol is truly pure
Which we use not to allure

Life is hard, death is easy
Death is hard, life is breæzy
Breath is hard, just as life is
Strife is hard, just as Palace-siz


One Palace, Two Palace
Half Palace, True Palace
O Palace Beyond the Exit, O Palace Composed Within Time
From beyond Grant inner peace, For this lil light-mind of mine

The Wolf and the Jester (A Poem)

For Four+4, a Sequel

A Coincidence of Fate
A Core-incidence of fate
A Four-situation of eight
A seven situation, satiate

The Wolf within fights death
While the Fitz begs for last breath
Which, oh which future shall they getid
Futures’ discerned fast from Crystal ball Meth-od

“The Wolf and the Jester have wasted” away
For three and four remaining days
A week remains of their ways
A week to last for all remaining days

For four and four of fate
Make a rotation of eight
An infinity to satiate
An infinite ways to open the Gate

Just one final gate remains
The Gate to Life and Death are one and the Sames

As yellow becomes blue
Fitz & Fool we (re;)turn to
As one shall be two
And 7, infinite too
