The Behemoth cum Leviathan cum Cherubim cum Seraphim Monsters of Heaven and Earth Meta-flesh Manifesto

Earth:

Shining wake-mire boils!

White-haired deep heaves!

(Heap it up! Heap it up!)

Mud sucks under-flux, cuts,

cracks creep across earth mantle cover-crust

High Beast beats low, sneezes flame

(and all the lovers say: ‘My heart leaps up!')

Lumbering limbs laughingly lift heavenward,

crush cumbrous, shut up in scales,

flails tails log-like, slashing,

mighty afraid of his crashings

‘Who can open the doors of his face, with his terrible teeth all around?’

What spatial strictures on Creation’s facial features?

Deep sea creatures, deep space structures,

Oh, gargantuan form and frightening frame

Frolic before the Omnipotent!

Heaven:

A hundred eyes burning from a body

Thunderous winging wondrous, ringing

graced, four-faced (Lion! Ox! Eagle! Man!)

molten glowing metal showing

moves of cloven hooves,

awesome rims of wheels full of eyes

under fiery whirlwind skies

engulfed in jagged jumping lightning-flame,

HOME

of the white-hot engine

beneath the great white

THRONE!

Abyss assailing abyss

in this unveiling instance of the Omnipresence!

While a giant hand knocks on the shoddy sky,

a Voice turns my bones turn to water:

‘Child, child, child,

let me in before the night comes.’

Many Dimensions in Unison:

Every tribe, tongue, nation

revels in the revelation Omniscient!

Exponential thousands of experiential

multi-dimensional creatures in the deafening ecstatica

to the Voice of the Mysterion!

Interim:

‘Will you put a hook in his nose,

leash him for your maidens?

Lay your hand on him:

Remember the battle—Never do it again!’

The Teachers, The Preachers

The Four Living Creatures

flanked Him with triple sanctum

(‘HOLY! HOLY! HOLY!’)

in the Omnisophical scheme

of Yahweh Elohim.

logos pistis dunamis theos

And underneath are the everlasting arms

logos pistis dunamis theos...

The Maker Speaks:

Seven eyes!

Seven horns!

The Lamb that was torn

scorns the shame

breaks the seals

reveals the Name!

Fearsome roaring of the Lion of Praise…

It’s the
Voice
of
the
MYSTERION!

  1. A number of people have asked to see this in print since I recited it at my Dad's memorial service last year. It's a Voice of the Mysterons song I wrote from around 2006.

  5. Hi again, was that a quote then? Just curious. Also, in what sense do you mean I'm a 'heretic'. (I know you're saying something positive, I'm just not sure what it means.) Take care.

  6. sorry, i was careless in reading and communicating.. read the red letter quote by R. A. Lafferty as yours..
    not enough thinking and too much sensing went into that comment.

    it is that the best thinkers i know have been accused of being heretics, while in truth they are those who are not afraid to ask questions and plumb the depths of mystery and Love.

    hope you "get" my meaning.. sorry, i don't know you, and not sure where these impressions come from.

    Cheers.

    1. No problem! I get you 100% now. I definitely own up to that Laffertian sense of 'heretic' proudly (and humbly, to be paradoxical). Take care.
