seduced and content

by Matthew Sharp

every move we make
every cloud of dust slapped off of the carpenters ass
destoys the universe
to the inhabitants of it
it is THE only
it's dramatic enough to sorrow
in effigy of the forgotten

every i(dea) we create
every understanding
gives birth to the universal
sliding into fascimiles of laws of physics
begging for attention
waiting for your empty hands
the sculpter is busy
masturbating in a corner
host to the organisms through their seduction/lust
impure dishonesty
enhancing the truth with lies
more and more and more make-up for disguise

the cycle intonates into a disharmonic
style for seduction

the point is dullened for survival

I really enjoyed the read. I think this idea is far too common today for Americans..and really for anyone. We are seduced by so many things in this world, and have a hard time seeing what really exists behind the facade. Great read :)
