HAVE YOU EVER LONGED FOR HEIRONYMOUS BOSCH TO HAVE SUSPENDED A MESSAGE ABOVE HIS GARDEN OF EARTHLY DELIGHTS; PERHAPS AS HIS CHARITABLE ATTEMPT TO DESCRIBE THE INDESCRIBABLE AND TO DECIPHER THE INDECIPHERABLE? WELL, HERE IS MINE, ALBEIT ONE WHICH MAY AS WELL HAVE ORIGINATED FROM GROUCHO MARX:

HERE WERE THE SISTERS - AN ANDROGYNOUS QUINTETTE; BORNE BY NOAH’S ARK; COURIERS OF THE BLOOD LINE OF BOTH THE FATHER AND HIS SON, AND OF THE UNBORN GHOSTS, TO BOOT! WITH THE BLOOD LINE CIRCLING BACK ON ITSELF - THE BEGINNING JOINING THE END - NOT AS AN UNINTERRUPTED, UBIQUITOUS CONTINUUM ... MORE AS A DRAIN-BOUND LIQUEFIED STREAM, SWIRLING AND SUCCUMBING TO GRAVITY... A PROCESSION OF SELF-CONTAINED, ARROW- HEADED SEGMENTS - EACH COURSING ITS PREDESTINED TARGET... ENTERING THROUGH THE EAR OF EACH LIVING THING, THEN OUT THE OTHER - YET LINGERING FOR AN AMOUNT OF TIME REQUIRED TO UNITE CHICKEN FEET WITH CHICKEN LEGS, HIPS TO THIGHS, BEAKS WITH THEIR PECKING MECHANISMS; TO DETERMINE, THEN INSTALL ROYAL OR NON-ROYAL PROPENSITIES FOR ALL BLACK AND WHITE FARM DOGS - TO MAKE CERTAIN THEIR TONGUES GO IN AND OUT AND SALIVATE ADEQUATELY, AND GOD NOSE WHAT ELSE? DOG KNOWS!...

AND THE ARK COMING TO REST? DRY DOCKING? MY BROTHER TOLD ME IT HAD NOT BEEN AT THE TOP OF ONE OF THE MOUNTAINS OF ARARAT, BUT AT THE TOP OF THE TALLEST PEAK OF THE ARBUCKLE MOUNTAINS, NESTLED IN AN AREA OF THE EARTH IN THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE WHICH WOULD EVENTUALLY BECOME REFERRED TO AS SOUTH CENTRAL OKLAHOMA... NOT TOO FAR REMOVED FROM AN AREA WHICH WOULD EVENTUALLY BECOME REFERRED TO AS PONCA CITY - THE FINAL RESTING PLACE OF ADO, OR EDITH, THE WIFE OF LOT - HER SALT TURNED TO BRONZE - HER NAME CHANGED TO THE PIONEER WOMAN - MOUNTED ON A PEDESTAL, AND TRYING TO GET TO CALIFORNIA...

IT ALL WAS, IS, AND REMAINS A DEBILITATING AND TERRIBLY COMPLEX, AGONIZINGLY SLOW METASTASIS...

ONE WOULD HAVE TO AT LEAST HALFWAY BEEN THERE TO EVEN BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND...
