Neath me the fire

reading about Margaret Wertheim's magnificent dissertation on the history of space and spacial concepts The Pearly Gates of Cyberspace. Everything from Dante to the Internet via Aristotle, Kepler, Newton, Galileo, Descartes, Kant, Hubble, Einstein, Wells and others. She has a lovely way of looking at things from an off-kilter angle that makes her observations rooted in something other than raw fact. Yer mad, man.

I have to save you
from a deadly homebrew
a concoction made behind dark doors
wino cellars under hobnailed floors
Hallowed be thy name
and wild be thy nature
I’m ruminating on the cud of love
milking the sacred moo
cow’s licking clucking coo
slickly cuddling a cloud called you
