The transient bible

Sodium yellow and its cinderblock wall.
God the Great Neurotic assembled
his assemblies and made them literate.
They suckled their mothers and laid
one block on another, on another.
Headaches in addicts and groin-killing dropouts.
Anonymous in a timeless stretch, dissimilar
as putty in a putty factory.
They put on their clothes and stooped lowly.
The climbing wall, a simple analogy,
more apt than bowls of vinegar or honey.
Taller than any of us, yet somehow,
drowsing and dumb its vibe is cheaper
than the propane by it or these eyeballs now.
The cashier knows she is a miraculous
creature, all uneducated chemistry.
Her sudden-death heart palpitations
produce motion where none should be.
