The Saints 2: What the Saints Do


The saints see through roofs
and through the centuries
They see your thoughts
the future
your future thoughts
all of this at once
and from a great distance

You can’t but imagine it
in terms of colour
perhaps a time-lapse sequence, fast heat

The saints manifest in burning homes
The homes are their minds
but they’re also real homes
Love is air (worthless)
consciousness is just the idea
that keeps you here

The saints cause drama
dump cylinders
whumping cylinders by the ditch
