"I am rarely called to take up the microphone, it's true, but I just kind of walked into this hall and didn't know it was the back of the theatre, and it seemed like nobody was around, but then I peeked through this curtain..."


prophet, poet, mystic, seer

he said, "I'm not trying to say anything--

but just to speak the truth"

in the heart of what happens

not furniture or fate but

when the goddess turns beside you

at every moment, her face away only

in sleep, the very moon

calls out to you, "I am"

and the voices...

"Mythological entities, townspeople

come stand by me, come listen

to what I have to say"

...of the many rang clear as day:

"Sleep well yourself, ambassador."
