Bling!…

***

Beware… The kings… Of bling… Those who cannot distinguish… Symbol from material… ‘Pigsy’… Bless him… Would often drift off… Into sleep… In the arms of lovely ‘geisha’… Only to awake… In a dungeon… Of his own devising… Sometimes… He awoke… In a sty… With our thoughts… We make the world… Which amounts…. To the self-same thing… And what did the Demon Lords intend… When once they had snared… Our hero… Why, they planned to sacrifice him… This never quite works out… Because… As every one who is anyone knows… Willing sacrifices… Work much better than unwilling.

***

In the context… Of our story… All this may seem… Highly fantastical… And yet… Many a contract… Has turned… Decidedly sour… When once signed… Or struck… People change… When circumstances… Change… Ask any politician… Or leader… The allure… Of bling… Is no guarantee… Of anything… We need to remember… That although… Lilith is supposed to be… Adam’s first wife… She is actually the same figure… Who… After dreaming… Her snake… Steps out… From behind a tree… And offers its fruit… To the red-earth… Is this illusion… Or reality… And what… Would constitute which?…

The shards… Of shopping mall… Windows… Cascade… Around the fall… Of Zhora Salome… Otherwise known as Jo Cass… Like so many shattered dreams… And the flakes of snow… Blizzard… About… The sky… Swirled by the wind… Like so many irretrievable souls… They offer no answers… Even for those who ask… And really want to know… It seems unfair… Somehow… To be caught up… In something… Which has never been… Fully explained… And which now… Seems… Unlikely to ever be… Even partially explained… At least Roy Baty… Got to meet… His maker… How are we supposed to… Recognise ours?

We'd love to hear from you...
