944 Takes On Three (maybe) Unrelated Things 11-24-2020

PROPHESY:

The prophet must prophesy

with the vaguest, most generalized applicability possible.

Specificity, always the enemy of prophesy.

Creating anticipation never actualized,

this the prophets goal.

Thus he is never wrong,

and always employed.

RAGE:

must always be tactical,

never strategical.

Its impact intensifies,

boils,

in the calm before the storm.

If constant it becomes merely the norm,

loosing its power to overwhelm

in the continual, boring, roar.

BEAUTY

must occasionally show us the BEAST in her.

Be the ugly bitch,

unpredictably.

When her ugly possibility’s revealed,

with all its flaws and flaking skin,

the more we lust for her to be BEAUTY, again,

the more seductive she becomes.

The more in control she is.

The more of us

she owns.
