THE RAINFALL

cube and anna -

sky of gaga

thoughts and tongues

of a rainfall. 


very heavy smoke;

see its strong billow

muscling its cash power

stark upon the globe.


rugs and carpets laying

of big boys spree spraying;

you don't have the heart,

die! or better still, faint quick!


money is the earth;

earth is the money;

the two you must have

or else just shut lips!


but then what's the fire

burning smoke this strong?

pure burn of heaven

or secrets deep, long?


times are the wide eyes

of money parade;

vanities on errand

to push rats on race.


hustle for the money

bustle for the fame;

take the shortest shown route,

arrive 'bang!' so great.


money is double mouth

and twice shown of eyes;

hear it twice and louder;

see it deep and wide. 


money is the earth;

earth is the money.

both are six, half dozen

of how you think it. 


cube and anna -

rainfall of these words.

let it water wisdom;

let it grow....... full stop.
