Idiot Ballet

Dial adjusted to high shadow frequency:
Words in cipher
Reveal a world without colour
Faceless Rule amputates
With hermetic, surgical, pristine teeth
Past skin and ligaments and marrow;
Past atoms and light and forms
Through the soul's appendages
Mouth babbles and blasphemes G_d on High
From a Darkness churned by writhing Angels
Clumsy block-tongue obstructs oxygen from the mind
Issues serialized directives,
Orders G_d's image, Man's Tide
In a mighty Idiot Ballet-
Much too long to sit through
G_d is not mocked
Cowards stampede, panic and falter
In the twilight of Lawless Order
All the way into the nighttime-
Of Little Horn
