The Power of Self-Movement

in a wide stance, wider than what is grounded upon.
the self handling of the universally thin-edged truth.
the turned away second-coming, mentally proposed.
within the view of Asia Minor, go Westward boy.
gone to the plane, to interlaced threads away from.
the crystallized, occasional twisting of self-soul.
protuberances of your emptied body, holistically.
a plane, straight as if released, conquers the postures.
of affected beneath, beneath the healing of fatality.
God, my God, you cannot kill me, when you are dead.
