Jottings From A Cuneiform Tablet

Too full

It overflows the sides

The top

Pushed up and out of sight

Bubbling (or frothing)

Incapable of control

Chosen they wait

Who can priest (?)

Such a god

Impossible to know, to understand

Without gloves

Fingers are dust

Were brittle

Leprous like the king

Only the blind

Only the deprivation

Of all senses

( ) Peace possible

In this place

( Palace, Labyrinth, House of

Exaltation and Imminent

Disaster )
