This is a protoplastic work; using symbolism to fuse the actions of the heart-beat as the life-beat and the cogitating mind as the stream of consciousness entwined in one, and looking out over a seemingly gloomy world, and trying to make sense of what it finds - without any real sense of luck! Glimpses of what may be lurk in here, as well as what is and was. Enjoy. :-)> don.

The Tin-Gods Drums.
i) A ponderous, weary ticking in the stillness of my room,And a stale-sweaty, heavy atmosphere compounds that torridgloom;The rhythmic click-click-clacking of a million tiny, tin-pestle feetThat POUND the steel plate Mind-Floor in a polyphonic,thunderous beat.ii) The minds darkness flows in crazed ever-flowing colours,like some turbulent ephod;And in an atmosphere where the air has no condition, I dreamof lying on a cold, wet, earthy sod.But the mind is restlessly wandering; frantic, as if its owncells end is nigh,But in cloudy dark few stars litter the Heavens; no guidinghelp from up On High.iii) Eventually, those thoughts that mean so little will becast, useless on the pyre;

Where the raw, Elemental, Thought-Phoenix-Blaze draws newperspectives; in gaudy blasts of lightning-fire.Like the snap of every flint that ever deemed to raise aspark,In the bleakness of thought-matter weaving riddles in thedark.
iv) And all the World is about the fusion; in-fusion;con-fusion,Which only ever leads to the instilling of deeperIllusion; and deeper Con-Fusion!Did the Eternal ever see this coming, under the Moon andunder the Sun?Because it seems too much like a battle that was lostbefore it could ever be won!v) And there in that colliding melee; you can finallystart to see some Truths:That only poisoned waters flow within their Fountains ofYouth.And there, even stars can rain down in icy, blazingclods;That herald the end for so many false idols andintransigent neon gods.vi) In the Crucibles of Endeavour; some thoughts beatlow-drawn paths We made too many darkling Waiting Gods in thoseSacrificial Hearths.For in those dank, deep mind caves, even those thingswhich Heaven has abhorredAre recast to try to make them seem like Emissaries ofThe far more potent Lord!

vii) I look out of a window and see a thousand half-lit,half-darkened rooms;And wonder, is this is a Living World? It seems like aseries of nigh-sealed Tombs.Variation causes interest; its Life and NaturalEvolution at play,While too much in the physical world seems likestagnation and decay.viii) As the Thought-World changes minute by minute wehave to realiseNew contexts to the lessons that weve learned:-Some flames we shied from are almost far too subtle now;But to go too near provides a far more vicious, savageburn!xi) Silently, the computers hid beneath the wreckRun your life from every second to a financial pound;If you get caught within the morass,Theyll run you deep into the ground!x) And what if the Earth Grows, as successively moreever-numerous species rise and fall?And the bones of Ancient Life become the new Cold Worldsmost precious haul?The Alchemy of the Mother Earth is its, and its to know;
