Words, metaphors for knowing,
less rapid than thought, brought on by
a need to convey the inside, out enters
as a lion, preys, succumbs to lams and exits, 
what's been and what will be, a present rapt in bows, 
under the tree when the bough breaks, I will catch baby
or I will catch hell from those who art forbidden in heaven,
from whence the kingdom came, undone will here, 
this time, this earth, hidden within the good word
