In the beginning

was

is the Word

and the Word—the beginning

the upon

neither Man-u-fractured

“time”,

nor unnecessary

“once”.
 
 
 

The

beginning

(a dark & stormy night)

of

–His·story—

God’s.

the Big Guy, you know,

your upstairs border

–the fella that barters in place of bucks

(you might have seen him on TBS)

but however it goes, He’s

a righter.

(I role, sure, but it explains the rent situation)

Righting

(and re-Righting)

“tome”

U-ni-Verse

that’s

U in Verse, to be precise

–wherein the lot of U’s are graphemes

characters linked into words

(mostly geographic)

excepting the compound verbs families compose, and

the repeating technique generations braid by epic chapter

that’s epoch chapter, but am I repeating myself?

Events cribbed on The Wrist

Happiness bolded and

underlines

Natural Disasters a crumpled ball with which He’s disgusted,

tragedies

Accidents

just Cross* Outs,

death the Red Pen that edits

–courtesy Lou Cipher Ink, a

P.O.D. outfit whose contracts bear a certain amount of scrutinizing,

fraught

~as they are~

in coded legalese.
