i, man

i like being a man

this world and everything
on it is mine
for the taking

dominion given me
by its Creator

i am fashioned by
Earth and God

mud and Breath.

woman was made
of man and God

bone and Breath.

i gave of my life
for hers in Holy Days.

but I am a taker by Nature
an ape by comparison
a fool in Spirit
and blind to space
of whose dust i am hewn

a patchwork quilt
of interplanetary incest.

a halfwit before her
a cretin, an addlepate, lost.
there is indeed a God
and i am salt crystals
at His table. mined from
oceans of Everything.
