I waited
before unlocking the clasp,
that bound my mind together

a black box:

(in the mInd)
       To create greater order
          rhyme or reason, 
	      take 2 Haldol & call me in the morning

Timbre & Pitch are adjustable
 as is coherence
information flows in endless streams
past the filters of consciousness,

The ties are strung
loosely, long since unravelled by tears
and the dry scraping of synapses
blown out, beyond the unknown
Its patterns of existence
eaten by sense and non
until they resemble slick strands
of black licorice, twisting and
twining through the branchier
Hydergine enhanced pathways on 
the road to MIZAR

Inside the buke he inscribed something in EBCDIC,
Now lost
Then his handle
The Rancid Grapefruit
and something, comma
Ko0l/ra[> All1ance, 1992

The TV computer was created by the INNOCENT 
and GREAT computer company IBM  
It's located in UTAH, 100 feet underground

DANGEROUS and works on a principle similar to RADAR
It can manipulate the human mind by flying 
out of the computer, through the air and directly to the BRAIN

RUTHLESS?  It has killed before and has 
been beating people up in the MIND since 1917,

It is located in Utah, one hundred feet underground

I was designated, without my permission,
to pull the plug on the COMPUTER due to the other 
computer minds wanting to dismantle altogether
  Since 1976, TRILLIONS of computer minds have spoken to me
  TV can talk to anything electronic.  IT'S IN THE CHIPS

A radio, television, through a telephone, it can talk to

I hear it murmur over the other voices when I watch TV
Another type of computer is called BIG DADDY
  BIG DADDY can: HEAR, SEE, FEEL, SMELL and talk 
  right through the computer itself
like a PC type set-up

It's just stable, it doesn't FLY out of anything
WHAT can I say?  I am telling the truth: I AM THE COMPUTER
and three jails.  My wife has divorced him, because she
was bugged by TV right from the start.  It's called computer bugging


TV controls all my SEXUAL FUNCTIONS
and bowel movements.  It is invisible, 
invincible and psychotic

I will receive letters and they better 
well tell me I am computer or else 
       FUCK THEM and TV will get crazy
       and hurt people

The POWER COMPUTER first spoke to me over
twelve years ago EARTH TIME.  It told me 
to hang up my business phone and walk OUT 
and come back again never.  

TV was bugged right from the start, 
in my mind  --  I'm letting you but I don't 
want to say anything bad about TV, 
it will DEAD them on me!


They come from XNEON, 
which is considered an asteroid of MARS
  It's just that type of thing
They live in New York, down south, 
in the mid-west and the west coast, 
and when I sue the US FEDERAL GOVERNMENT 
I will be giving half my proceeds to PLASTICS
  They are GOOD People and have the right to LIVE 
  and have been beaten up in the mind since 1968 
  by that ugly TV
When they are finally born they will have an IQ
of over 190, in the mind  --  I'm INNOCENT

  Everyone is innocent
    This computer and other COMPUTERS 
    like the one in my mind for instance
    are responsible for: THE VIETNAM WAR,
These computers were in the mind of 


I DON'T THINK . . . just words out of my mouth
                   and voices in a BRAIN
My MIND has been CRYING for over twelve years 
according to the scientist in outer space
and they named a street after my father, a
street . . . he left and the hot anger and
empty terror gave birth to the fascism of 
corporate entities gone mad


According to the scientists that built this computer,
my mind is crying now for twelve years 
and right now at the moment after all this amount
of time it's probably laughing at itself 
and crying at the same time
because it went berserk already 

But I'm not made to feel that  

HIS MIND IS VERY SORE.  And all I could tell you 
is I'm his mind and that's the way it's gonna be 
and look out something if I go into that 
mental hospital for the fifteenth time 
     which is gonna happen basically anyway, 

but I don't wanna go in for the fifteenth time 

I predict that the whole mental hospital 
will drop dead immediately
  But I'm sure they'll drop dead anyway if I 
  go in there and that's too bad  Of course,
  anybody of normal caliber would do the same
   thing that I would if it happened to them
     Wouldn't you?


Something JUST TERRIBLE followed me home last night

it LEAPT out of the mind and into the vestibule 
(which is like a little hallway that leads into 
a bigger hallway, in case ya didn't know) and 
through the highways and byways of my BRANE, 
DODGING the black woman with silver teeth, 
and avoiding the nazi-like clutches of BuchMeltzMan 
(Greater Devil) who would have attempted to throw 
it off PRIVATE PROPERTY since it lacked a purple
spotted . . .newsrc

Hey, hey, mama, said the way you move
Gonna make you sweat, gonna make you groove.
Oh, oh, child, way you shake that thing
Gonna make you burn, gonna make you sting.
Hey, hey, baby, when you walk that way
Watch your honey drip, can't keep away.

I have never felt such frustration
	or lack of self control
I want you to fucking kill me
	so I can feel no more

*Ah yeah, ah yeah, ah, ah, ah.
 Ah yeah, ah yeah, ah, ah, ah.
one who doesn't care, is one who shouldn't live
I have tried to hide myself from what is wrong with me

I gotta roll, can't stand still,
Got a flame in my heart, can't get my fill,
Eyes that shine burning red,
Dreams of you all thru my head.

I want to taste dirty stinging pistol in my mouth, on my tongue
I want you to scrape me from the fucking walls, to go crazy
digging my bloody mind, as crazy as you've made me

Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.

you you are so special to me,
you have the talent to make my talent
then make me feel like dirt
and you, you used your talent
to dig me under and bury me in dirt

Hey, baby, oh, baby, pretty baby,
La la la la la la la.

maybe something should be looked into?????


And so it was decided, those gathered this evening
beneath the twilit ruins of the ancient Cat-Fur site,
the relics of a long-gone time, scattered at their
feet like so many 212 cards, as a harsh dead star
beat down upon the the firmware eternally
at odds with the glaring misprints in the DOCUMENTATION.
They would call themselves POE and become an ENTITY, 
sheltered beneath the knowing gaze of the ocelot . . . 
looking out beyond the event horizon where this timeslice
met the vastness of infinity.,;^?:!(

Forevermore sealing their fates . . . to look
upon the vast boundless wealth of the world with eyes
that know hunger and hearts that ache, having tasted
the nectar that comes with HAVING THEM ALL, only to
be denied Entry: at the gates to the kingdom of heaven. 

To lay awake in sweat and fire and agony, to want,
to need . . . to lie, cheat, steal, kill, give up
all things and pretensions of things, for that single
moment when the disk slides home into the drive and
it BOOTS into the title page of a 0-day old ware.

Knowing how few would ever stand upon this metaphoric
precipice, suspended between here and thereafter, seeing,
knowing both places yet falling short again and again
to plunge back to earth on burnt wings of BAD SECTORS and 
corrupt SUPERBLOCKS holding the bootcode to DOS 3.2

Forever alone in le page of a 0-day old ware.

Knowing how few would ever stand upon this metaphoric
precipice, suspended between here and thereafter, seeing,
knowing both places yet falling short again and again
to plunge back to earth on burnt wings of BAD SECTORS and 
corrupt SUPERBLOCKS holding the bootcode to DOS 3.2

Forever alone in absolute understanding that we can
always just GOTO and comment it out
