The Tongue That Brings Healing is the Tree of Life

 

 

the hill of frankincense curves
around her thighs now so many
years after phallus impudicus invaded -
its pain the guise of rheumatism

the one who does not
speak out against evil is
a mute devil; thy salve
that heals thy chapped ass
is all but used up - the empty
barrel makes more noise

the tongue that brings
healing is the tree of life
that which boughs down to
the breach of spirit to lift us

mediocrity turns unwelcome
intrusions that threaten us into
great possibilities of our own -
the light of zion we minister;
endorse polygamy and anoint
our rosicrucian cross with rose of
sharon

the hammer shatters glass
but forges steel - the creation
of a thousand forests is in one acorn -
alchemy is but a four-sided anvil melding
polytheism to all-that-is

Copyright Ms. Sage Sweetwater, celebrity firebrand lesbian novelist

I agree with Duke it's a golden line for sure.

"...the hammer that shatters glass but forges steel...." - one of the finest lines that I have read in a long, long time. Very impressive.
