Classic Poetic Dysleixa

Edgar Allen Poe, Hart Crane, Willam Yeats 1916
Frank o’Hara, Bukowski, Ginsberg,
The Rubiyat of Omar Khayyam
Ezra Pound, Emily Dickenson, Sylvia Plath, Marina Ivanovna Tsvetaeva
Every one of them considered mad to write poetry.
My words of madness find me on the George Washington Bridge resisting the urge to fly
Hart Crane’s supposed last words to his sailor assassins were ‘Good-bye everyone.”
Some other people prefer these.
“Fuck you. I’ll show you courage.”
He hung his jacket on the railing and jumped overboard.
Fcuk you indeed.
Classic Poetic Dysleixa in honor of a poet lost at sea.

If Jesus Came To My House

According to the New Testament Jesus was crucified by the Romans atop Calvary. His apostles entombed their Messiah in a cave. His mother and Mary Magdalene mourned his death. The High Priests of Judah celebrated the demise of another troublemaker. Only Jesus didn’t die easy.

On the third day the Son of Joseph supposedly rose from the dead.

Fifty days later He assumed divinity and Christians have worshipped the Living Christ for thousands of years.

IF JESUS CAME TO MY HOUSE by Joan G. Thomas was a popular Catholic School book during the 1960s.

As an atheist I read it to discover the thoughts of my enemy.

It wasn’t a bad book, although Jesus never cooked anything or performed any miracles.

Gods don’t have to work.

Just like rich people.

Both worry about idle hands and the Church came out a handbook to prevent Catholic schoolboys from masturbation.

According to the Vatican 2352 masturbation is to be understood as the deliberate stimulation of the genital organs in order to derive sexual pleasure. “Both the Magisterium of the Church, in the course of a constant tradition, and the moral sense of the faithful have been in no doubt and have firmly maintained that masturbation is an intrinsically and gravely disordered action. The deliberate use of the sexual faculty, for whatever reason, outside of marriage is essentially contrary to its purpose.” For here sexual pleasure is sought outside of “the sexual relationship which is demanded by the moral order and in which the total meaning of mutual self-giving and human procreation in the context of true love is achieved.

True love.

The Church has never acknowledged true temptation other than Jesus’ trails before Satan, where he refused the wilds of this world.

However Jesus saw half-man.

God is all-seeing, so Jesus is half-seeing.

And temptation is everywhere.

God knows where too.

Like I said, “Thankfully I’m an atheist.”

And if there ain’t no God, then God knows nothing.

Thankfully all my temptations are left in the past.

But not the need to masturbate.

Jesus’ Tomb – 2013

“What is Jerusalem worth?” the bastard knight at the end of KINGDOM OF GOD asks Saladin, the leader of the Muslim army. 

“Nothing.” Saladin answered and walked away, then turns and says, “Everything.”

For centuries faith has determined the worth of Jerusalem for the Jews, Christians, and Muslims.

As an atheist I think they all believe what they believe to be true, but several years ago James Cameron, director of THE TERMINATOR series had declared his discovery of Jesus’ tomb in Talpiot, Israeli neighborhood in southeastern Jerusalem, established in 1922 by Zionists and current site of the IDF’s Talpiot scientific war program .

His DNA evidence attested to the veracity of his findings along with the suggestion that Jesus might have sired a son named Judah. 

Holy Jesus conspiracy freaks!

While an intransigent non-believer, I ascribe to the theory laid out in Nikos Kazantzakis’ novel THE LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST purporting that Jesus and Magdalene had fled Judea for India. VS Naipul’s TRAVELS AMONGST THE BELIEVERS mentioned a tomb of Jesus in Kashmir. Supposedly the messiah lived to the ripe age of 124. The wounds never healed in his hands and feet. According to Wikipedia Jesus was buried at the Roza Bal shrine in the downtown area of Srinagar in Kashmir. The word roza means tomb, the word bal mean place. Locals believe a sage is buried here, Yuzasaf (alternatively Yuz Asaf or Youza Asouph), alongside another Muslim holy man, Mir Sayyid Naseeruddin.

The shrine was relatively unknown until the founder of the Ahmadiyya movement, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, claimed in 1899 that it is actually the tomb of Jesus. This view is maintained by Ahmadis today, though it is rejected by the local Sunni caretakers of the shrine, one of whom said “the theory that Jesus is buried anywhere on the face of the earth is blasphemous to Islam.

Lastly according to Wikipedia a Shingō village in Japan contains what is purported to be the last resting place of Jesus, the so-called “Tomb of Jesus” (Kirisuto no haka), and the residence of Jesus’ last descendants. The Sawaguchi family’s claims that Jesus Christ did not die on the cross at Golgotha. Instead his brother, Isukiri took his place on the cross, while Jesus fled across Siberia to Mutsu Province, in northern Japan. Once in Japan, he changed his name to Torai Tora Daitenku, became a rice farmer, married a twenty-year old Japanese woman named Miyuko, and raised three daughters near what is now Shingō. While in Japan, it is asserted that he traveled, learned, and eventually died at the age of 106. His body was exposed on a hilltop for four years. According to the customs of the time, Jesus’ bones were collected, bundled, and buried in the mound purported to be the grave of Jesus Christ.

I have a question for James Cameron.

“What is Jesus’ Tomb worth?”

Everything or nothing or something in between?

Happy Gun Shooting Freedom Day -2014

Today the USA celebrates the Declaration of Independence freedom.

24 hours of traffic jams, bbq, flag-waving, chest-thumping, nascar, bad beer, fighting, and fixing a crapped out car on the highway causing a miles-long traffic jam.

As well as American ingenuity.

Belly flops.

Flip flops

A house in the country.

And the right to be a man.
