Sisyphus At The Gym

If I feel the universe is rolling up inside me it’s because
it is; it has nowhere else to go.

And so, I sit still and listen
to my choice of illusions, the well-fed
desiccated death’s-head, squatter célèbre
of the psychic tenement, squawking the con
man’s overtures of lovelessness.

Sisyphus, the faith healer, drinks 10 kombuchas as a cancer cure.

Sisyphus! At the gym, working lats and traps,
but there’s noise on the channel —
packet loss in the stream of infinite ones,
I found nothing but a gaunt Clark Kent
with his finger down his throat
and Sisyphus at the gym
working traps and lats, saying
that wasn’t me and this isn’t that —

I got the message; it’s scrambled and I can’t tell
which grimace on the Wong-Baker pain scale is me
and I need to know: what’s heavier than eternal
return and could I lift it — up ladders,
through trap doors, either either or
or and what’s the constant choosing ever for?

Sisyphus hits the gravity bong and turns the dharma wheel uphill.

Breathe in, shapeshifter,
make your illusion of choice
between negative pressure and potential
space. The breath breathes itself
and light, the only sacrament, falls in
to itch that skeletal geometry
beneath bones, the network of all ones,
light that can’t be seen.

The gates are open,
      Polyphemus of Tarsus —
No one
is blinding you!

Sisyphus refreshes his email inbox as he is damned to do
until something breaks or breaks through.

    I see a lot of interesting content on your blog. You have to spend a lot of time writing,
    i know how to save you a lot of work, there is a tool that
    creates unique, SEO friendly posts in couple of seconds, just search in google – laranita’s free content source

    But they’ve got very less threshold for clicks because of “mistakes”.
    Google is undoubtedly implementing releasing an API, yet it’s not there yet.
    You can try out your backgrounds in what is known as Sprite – Method – Test by checking the
    fundamental vert quads are in-line with your orthographic projections.
