Bring me the excessive center of a trapezist.
If no longer, carry me the center of a inebriated monk
so i'll light up an historic text
in a language i will not understand.

100 miles an hour on education wheels
so allow me splash via a purple puddle,
let me kiss the face of a crimson puddle,
let me write my crazed, severe demands
on the frost-cracked window of god's split
